There are a number of Scottish writers who have not yet been translated into German (cf. the information on my PS, too). This class will do at least two things: 1) discuss a few important and useful theoretical texts on literary transla¬tion. I was for a long time actively involved in setting up the studies course 'Literary Translation' at Düsseldorf University, and the theory will be based on my experience since then. 2) The main part of this class will go into James Rob¬ertson's excellent novel and focus on this example. He has just told me that no¬body is working on a translation yet. So let's do it. If there are enough students in this class, we could also add other authors and preferably de-cide about this before the first session by e-mail.

In case students want to focus on another author of whom they've already read at least one novel and about whose difficulties for a translation they could inform the class, this is also possible. The objective would then be for individual (groups of) students 3) to produce at least one chapter of their author in order to send it to a potential German publisher. Denise Mina is such a young Scottish writer who has been quite successful in Scotland, but never translated into German. This will defi¬nitely change, once the BBC has turned one of her detective novels into a TV series. Lewis Grassic Gibbon is another author who has not yet been translated, even though his trilogy A Scots Quair (1946) has been much praised as well as his short stories. I'll meet other Scottish authors in Berlin soon, but do make your own suggestions, too. Text: Robertson, James, And the Land Lay Still, London: Penguin 2011.
