Comparative Literature and Critical Translation MSt

The MSt in Comparative Literature and Critical Translation is one-year interdisciplinary course supported by several Faculties within the Humanities Division. The MSt is attached to Oxford’s research centre in Comparative Criticism and Translation (OCCT) and builds on the recent growth in scholarly awareness of the importance of translation to comparative and world literary study. This is what is meant by ‘critical translation’: not translator training, but rather an interest in the role played by translation and re-writing in literary history, and an alertness to the uses of translation in critical practice.
