The purpose of this assignment is to:
Assess your ability to construct an argument.
Develop introductory elements of a research proposal.
In this course you will write a research proposal that presents and justifies the need to study a research problem related to translation. You will not actually conduct the study. Rather, you will identify a problem related to a topic of interest, develop a research question from that problem, and identify ways in which the research could be conducted. Your Final Proposal, due Week 14, will be between 10 and 15 pages. The following assignments will contribute to your proposal.
Research Proposal: Draft Title, Aims, Context, Problem, Question – Due Week 4
Research Proposal: Literature Review – Due Week 7
