The Africa Institute announces the Global Africa Translation Fellowship. The fellowship welcomes applications from across the Global South for a grant of up to $5,000 to complete translations of works from the African continent and its diaspora, into English or Arabic. The deadline is on 15th October 2021.
Established in 2018, The Africa Institute in Sharjah, UAE, is an interdisciplinary academic research institute dedicated to the study, research, and documentation of Africa and the African diaspora.
The translation fellowship provides funding in the range of $1,000 to $5,000, depending on the quality and breadth of the project. Selected projects may be retranslations of old, classic texts, or previously untranslated works, collections of poetry, prose, or critical theory.
The project may be a work-in-progress, or a new project feasible for completion within the timeframe of the grant.
All applications will be reviewed by The Africa Institute’s faculty and research fellows. Recipients will be chosen based on quality of the proposal, and the demonstrated capacity of the applicant to complete the project.
The deadline is on 15th October 2021.
Please provide a two-page CV, a motivation letter justifying the translation to be undertaken during the fellowship, and a sample of the original text(s) and translation.
