Essay proposals are invited for a volume in the MLA's Options for Teaching series entitled Teaching Translation, to be edited by Lawrence Venuti. The volume is designed to offer faculty members models for developing programs as well as strategies for teaching translation practice and research. The essays will fall into three categories: accounts of representative programs, whether undergraduate or graduate, that offer degrees or certificates; descriptions of courses and pedagogies for teaching the translation into English of humanistic, pragmatic, and technical texts; and descriptions of courses and pedagogies for teaching translationinto any languageas an object of analysis and research, whether the course is devoted solely to translation theory and history or whether translation is included among other forms and practices in a course devoted to topics in literary, film, and cultural studies or other artistic and humanistic fields. The volume will include an essay on translation and new media, with attention to computer-assisted translation, although any such contribution needs to consider the cultural and political implications of the use of technology. If you are interested in contributing an essay (3,0003,500 words) that falls into one of these categories, please send a detailed proposal to Lawrence Venuti (LVenuti@...) by 1 May 2013.
