New MA in Literary Translation (French-English), NYU

A Message from NYU’s French Department:

Dear Colleague:

We wish to call your attention to our new M.A. Program in Literary Translation (fiction, non-fiction, literary analysis, humanities and social science texts). Starting in Fall 2011, this one-year program (two semesters in New York, the following summer in Paris) will both train students in literary translation and put them in touch with representatives of the publishing industry in New York and Paris. Students will take courses in the theory of translation, in French literature and culture, as well as participating in workshops focusing on specific translating challenges (for example theatre or poetry). They will be encouraged to develop their own translating style. The final exercise for the M.A. degree will be an original translation, supervised by professionals in the field.

Housed in the Department of French at NYU, students will also benefit from the myriad lectures, conferences, visiting professors, and French- and Francophone-focused activities of the Department. The Paris component at New York University in Paris will feature encounters with French and Francophone writers and a course in creative writing taught by well-known Anglophone writers.

We hope you will bring this program to the attention of your colleagues and to those students who might be interested in learning more about translation, in translation as a career, and in enhancing their knowledge of the intricacies of the French language and the imbrication of language and culture.

For more details and contact addresses, please visit our website at:


Sincerely yours,

Denis Hollier, Chair

Emmanuelle Ertel, Director, M.A. in Literary Translation

We would, of course, also be most happy to have your students apply to our other graduate programs: the PhD in French Literature; the M.A. in Literature; the M.A. in Language and Culture; the M.A. in Teaching French. Please visit our website for specifics of these programs:
