Cornell University’s Institute for Comparative Modernities welcomes applications from translators for a grant to complete translations of works from Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, etc. into English.

Cornell University’s Institute for Comparative Modernities (ICM) addresses the transnational scope of the modern in its multifarious articulations with capitalism and colonialism, and their legacies.

With an emphasis on developments outside the historical West, it promotes the study of artistic, intellectual and social movements attending formations of the modern.

Crucial to the ICM’s mission is inquiry into epistemologies and paradigms emerging from societies and spaces beyond the West.

Utilize This Offer

This is a non-resident, remote fellowship designed to allow the recipient to complete the work outside of Cornell University.

Selected works 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-process, or a new project manageable within the scope of the award.

Decisions will be made based on the quality of the proposed project, the demonstrated capability of the applicant(s) to complete the project, and the project’s fit with ICM’s priorities.

Translation projects that involve more that one translator are also welcome.

The awards will range from USD$1000 to USD$5000, depending on the scope of the project.

Effective immediately, all new Cornell hires, regardless of work location, must be fully vaccinated with an FDA- or WHO- authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine or have obtained a university-approved disability / medical or religious exemption by December 8, 2021.

Applications must be submitted by December 1, 2021, 11:59pm ET.
