Funding Opportunity: NEH Summer Institute “What is Gained in Translation: Learning How to Read Translated Texts” (NEH)

Deadline for Applications: March 1, 2017

Title: NEH Summer Institute “What is Gained in Translation: Learning How to Read Translated Texts”
Sponsor: National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)
Amount: $2,700 stipend 

Description: This NEH Summer Institute at Kent State University (June 4–24, 2017) is dedicated to the study of texts in translation as a way to develop cross-cultural literacy and to explore what can be gained by addressing issues of translation in the classroom. For scholars in the Humanities and Social Sciences who work with translated texts, this institute will provide the theoretical models and applications developed through Translation Studies that will enable them to exploit translation as a teachable moment. These strategies are designed to sensitize students and teachers to the worldviews embedded in other languages and to make them aware of the cultural specificity of their own modes of thinking and perception. The overall goal of the institute is to develop systematic approaches to teaching translated texts so that readers can both perceive the worldviews to which those texts give us access while acknowledging the important mediating role of the translators. 

How to Apply: Apply directly to the sponsor by March 1. See the announcement for a complete list of materials to be submitted with the application.
