I. INTRODUCTION Fuentes Culturales Aplicadas a la Traducción de Lengua C is an introductory level Cultural Studies course in which 2nd year T&I students are introduced to topics related to the cultural and linguistic reality of the US, the UK and Ireland. Socio-cultural and historical aspects not included in traditional language, linguistics or literature courses will be covered. The course contents are directly related to the texts, films and songs we will read, watch and listen to throughout the course. Students are strongly encouraged to reinforce classroom learning with pertinent extracurricular activities including original version cinema and language exchanges with visiting students from English-speaking countries. This survey course will help Translation Studies students better understand the most important historical events and contemporary currents shaping the English-speaking world today. II. METHODOLOGY Intensive reading and in-depth text analysis are the backbone of the course. Students are expected to have thoroughly read and understood assigned readings from required texts (An Illustrated History of the USA / An Illustrated History of Britain) before class, as well as participate freely and regularly in classroom activities and discussions. We will employ cooperative learning techniques to analyse films, documentaries, poems, cartoons, and a variety of other primary and secondary texts and audiovisual material chosen to complement the required reading. Critical thinking will be encouraged and all topics will be approached from a multidisciplinary perspective including basic ideas from disciplines such as historiography, sociology, cultural studies, translation studies, and anthropology. Classes will be held primarily in English and opportunities for practical English-Spanish (direct) translation practice will be afforded. III. EVALUATION Continuous assessment (15%), a 30-minute oral presentation (15%), midterm exam (30%) and a final exam (40%) will be the basis for the final grade. As future translators, students should demonstrate that they have acquired sufficient knowledge of the history, society and cultural discourse of the English-speaking countries studied.

The written exams will have two parts. In the first part, students will be asked to define/discuss/translate a series of terms, topics and/or texts related to social, cultural and historical questions. The second part of the exam will consist in an essay on one or more of the themes brought out in the course. In addition to the oral presentation and the exam, active participation in class and consistent completion of reading/homework assignments throughout the course will be taken into account for the final grade.
