“The task of the translator consists in finding that intended effect
[Intention] upon the language into which he is translating which produces
in it the echo of the original.” (Walter Benjamin)

The Institute for Human Sciences and ERSTE Foundation encourage
translators in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Cultural Studies to
apply for the prestigious Paul Celan Fellowship. The program aims to
overcome deficits and asymmetries in the exchange of ideas and reception
of scholarly literature which result from the division of Europe in the
20th century. Therefore, the Paul Celan Fellowships support Western to
Eastern translations, or between two Eastern European languages, and
especially Eastern to Western translations of canonical texts and
contemporary key works in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Cultural
Studies. Special emphasis is put on translations of relevant works written
by East European authors and/or by female gendered scholars. A thematic
relation to one of the IWM’s research fields is likewise welcomed.

Paul Celan Visiting Fellows are invited to spend three to six months at
the IWM between July 2013 and June 2014 to pursue their translation
projects while working in residence at the Institute. Fellows receive a
monthly stipend in the amount of EUR 2,250 to cover all expenses related
to the stay in Vienna. The IWM provides a personal office with internet
access, in-house research facilities and other relevant resources in
Vienna. Paul Celan Visiting Fellows participate in the scholarly community
and activities of the IWM.

Deadline for application is 31 January 2013.
