Paul Celan Fellowships for Translators 2018-2019

Paul Celan Fellowships for Translators 2018-2019

The aim of the Paul Celan Fellowship Program is to overcome deficits and asymmetries in the exchange of ideas and the reception of scholarly literature which result from the division of Europe in the 20th century. Therefore, the program supports translations of canonical texts and contemporary key works in the humanities, social sciences and cultural studies from Eastern to Western, Western to Eastern, or between two Eastern European languages. Special emphasis is put on translations of relevant works written by East European authors and/or by female scholars. A thematic relation to one of the research fields of the IWM is likewise welcomed. Please note that fiction and poetry will not be accepted.

Conditions

Paul Celan Visiting Fellows are invited to spend three to six months between July 2018 and June 2019 at the IWM to pursue their translation projects. Fellows receive a monthly stipend in the amount of EUR 2,500 to cover all expenses related to the stay in Vienna. In addition, the IWM provides the fellows with an office including access to internet, in-house research and administrative facilities as well as other services free of charge.
