TLAN 301: Classical Tibetan Translation Project I

This course aims to develop the ability to translate classical literary Tibetan into modern languages, primarily English. In weekly meetings selected readings on translation method and theory are introduced and discussed in relation to the field in general and to the area of Buddhist Studies in particular. Through translating a previously untranslated manuscript, issues of translation method and policy are introduced.
