Utlysning: Edwin Morgan Translation Fellowship

Scottish Universities’ International Summer School utlyser to stipender til oversettere som ønsker å delta på deres sommerkurs i Edinburgh i perioden 11. juli til 20. august 2016.

Full utlysning:

To celebrate the life and work of the translator, poet and academic, Edwin Morgan, Creative Scotland is funding one free place on the six-week Text and Context course and one four-week place on the Scottish and Contemporary Literature courses at the Scottish Universities’ International Summer School to two professional translators with an interest in twentieth-century and contemporary Scottish writing. This fellowship will foster collaboration between translators with the aim of promoting Scottish Literature, in particular, to an international audience.

The courses take place during the 11th July – 20th August 2016. The Fellowship will take place in Edinburgh, and will cover the cost of all tuition, standard accommodation, most meals, the social and cultural programme, and full use of the facilities at the University of Edinburgh’s library and the National Library of Scotland.

Please note the Fellowship does not include travel expenses or spending money. In the past, winners have given a one-hour translation seminar to SUISS students interested in translation.

Applications for this Fellowship are invited from professional translators with an interest in 20th century and contemporary Scottish writing. The closing date for applications is 18th March 2016.
