HISP 375 - The Oviedo Project

Semester Offered: Fall or Spring
0.5 to 1 unit(s)
The Oviedo Project at Vassar College aims at translating the 50 books of Gonzalo Fernández de Oviedo’s Natural History of the Indies–the first comprehensive description of the New World, written between 1524 and 1548—in time for the 500th anniversary of the publication of an abridged version of the first book in 1526. The collaborative project has been developed as part of Vassar’s new curriculum to work with student translators to produce the first complete English-language translation of the celebrated text. Students study and put into practice translation theory and editing skills as they complete their section of the project, under the guidance of profs.  Michael Aronna.

Prerequisite(s): HISP 216  or HISP 219  or permission of the instructor.

Course Format: INT
