Associate Professor, Comparative Literature
Our program has been one of the strongest in the nation in the field of Literary Translation, a particularly strong component of Comparative Literature at Indiana University. The department offers a Certificate in Literary Translation, which requires several courses and workshops in the practice of literary translation, as well as advanced graduate work in another language department.
Students may also complete a translation project as partial fulfillment of the M.A. degree. You must be enrolled in the M.A. or Ph.D. program in Comparative Literature or another language and literature department at IUB in order to earn the Graduate Certificate in Literary Translation.
Historically, our faculty members have had a particularly distinguished record as translators of poetry and fiction, receiving numerous national awards and holding high office in national organizations. A special strength of our faculty is the breadth of languages covered. We have produced highly regarded translations from the Chinese, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Persian Romanian, and Spanish, among other languages.
