This 2-unit course will be offered during weeks 9-16 and will comprise two distinct components. One class per week will be dedicated to doing research in Russian, where students will be expected to research a topic of their choice using Russian-language resources. Classroom sessions will allow students to brainstorm together, share their findings, and get assistance from the professor. The other class will be dedicated to introduction to translation from Russian to English. Students will learn about the basic theoretical concepts and organizational practices of translation, as well as resources used by professional translators, and will work on the translation of security-related Russian texts into English. Students' home assignments will mostly consist of translating a text or a segment, with classroom sessions dedicated to the discussion and revision of these translations.
