Submit to the Selden Memorial Translation Prize 2022

Reminder: Submissions to Cornell University’s 2022 Selden Prize Competition for translations from Japanese is coming up fast! Materials may be submitted electronically or by hard copy by August 1. Translations of works from across all time periods and genres are welcomed!  For details see the prize announcement at: http://asianstudies.cornell.edu/selden-prize

From the competition website:

“The prize, established in 2014 with contributions from former students, colleagues, and friends, honors the scholarly legacy of Cornell University’s Kyoko Selden (1936-2013). A scholar whose work as critic, editor, and translator ranged from engagement with courtly and medieval texts through contemporary Japanese writings addressing urgent social issues, Kyoko Selden was a beloved teacher of broad-ranging scope. By offering the award to translations still at the unpublished stage, the Kyoko Selden Translation Prize has been committed to supporting and encouraging translation and publication  of Japanese language materials across a similarly broad range.

“The 2022 competition will offer one award in each of two categories noted below for unpublished translations:

  1. Translators who are previously unpublished (excluding work for commercial or professional translation services), $2,500.
     
  2. Translators of previously published work, $2,500.”
