The night of the missing flowcharts

February 1, 2010

“Crash course” and “semiotics” are not exactly two things you want to hear in the same sentence first thing on a Monday morning. I did scribble down the charts described in these notes, and when I have time and access to a scanner I will add those images to this post.  These notes begin Week 5. Yes, I am a little behind.

Extremely Late Week3 Notes

January 20, 2010

These are extremely late because these notes were taken the week that we learned my mother had cancer. She’s since had her kidney out and is stable and starting to get up and about again, but frankly it’s a damn miracle I made it to any classes at all in week 3. This is, in fact, the only class of Translation Theory I got to that week; Monday was a holiday and Friday was the earliest I could skive off to get home and see my family. Thus, this post is the entire round-up for that week. Read the rest of this entry ?

Week One: Translation Theory

January 9, 2010

This weekend, I received permission from Professor Godzich of the UCSC Literature Department to post the notes from his class in Translation Theory. The class so far has been fascinating, and we’ve only had two lectures! Professor Godzich has a very distinctive teaching style, which includes prepared Powerpoint slides accompanying the fast-paced, intellectually-diverse lecture. The basic framing of my notes from his classes always include the full text of his Powerpoint presentation, which I embellish with as much information and commentary as I can squeeze in.

Also, I deeply apologize for the formatting of this post; I take notes in Dark Room, a fullscreen text editor with a color scheme that helps me focus. The tabs don’t translate well to the WordPress interface, so I’ll try to work on different ways to import or post this because I refuse to use any other kind of text editor for the initial notes. We shall see.
