This is the second year of the Global Humanities Translation Prize, a $5000 annual award to “encourage new translations of important literary, scholarly, and other humanistic books from around the world, particularly from non-Western languages,” according to the Global Humanities Initiative website at Northwestern University that administers the prize along with Northwestern University Press, which publishes the winning translations. This year’s prize goes to Lawrence Venuti, for a translation of Daybook 1918: Early Fragments by Catalan poet J.V. Foix. For more information about this year’s prize-winning project, visit the Northwestern University website. The Global Humanities Initiative website will be accepting submissions for next year’s competition starting in August.
Congratulations to Venuti on being selected for this award.
