13 Dec: Final Project Presentations

Assignments and Readings for Week 12, Monday, December 13

Before Class:
Post a complete draft version of your final translation project by 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, December 12. This project should be an annotated translation of something rather longer than you worked on for your first project in week 2 (5-8 pages of prose or 50-80 lines of poetry), but in one of the formats specified in the week two assignment. Use a separate conversation for each person's project.

Then, by 8:30 a.m. on Monday, December 13, post a commentary on your assigned partner's draft, in the same conversation where the draft was posted.

In Class:
Class will meet from 12:30 to 4:00 or 4:30. Please bring finger or other non-messy foods if you wish. I will provide drinks. This should allow us about 25 minutes for each presentation and discussion.

After Class:
You may either use the version that you posted for your final project, or tweak and fiddle for another day or two, but your final project is due the instructor by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 15. This assignment will count 50% of your grade for the seminar.
