The main objective of the course is to provide you an introduction to Gender Studies, including historical, political and sociological aspects; then we will discuss gender in the context of translation and translation studies. Finally you will be able to use adequate gender strategies in texts and to discuss gender topics on an academic level (also in contacts with future clients!).

Culture and language contrastive discussion, specific analysis of German and Austrian German. We will also deal with the question how language can create inclusion or exclusion and how language modifies our way of thinking and as a consequence the realities ou our life. We will put the results of this work in the context of translation studies to allow you to exerce your future professionnal activity in the field of language or culture transfer as well as language and culture counselling with the convenient fundaments of knowledge and sensibility in the field of gender.

Lecture, discussions, reading at home; autonomous work on different tasks;

Your final grades will base on a presentation (with slides and handout) [50 %] plus a) a book review or b) an essay. [50 %]

Will be communicated during our lessons.
