Students in all departments and programs (undergraduate and graduate) across the University of Michigan are invited to submit literary translations of texts from Classical Arabic, Persian, Armenian, and Turkish. We know that there are many people inspired by the beauty of these languages who wish to render them more freely and creatively than classwork often involves. The contest is intended to highlight the work of students who are interested in the process of translation as a creative, intellectually meaningful enterprise. This contest is coordinated in conjunction with the U-M conference “After Alexander: Classical Texts in Arabic, Persian and Armenian” (April 18-19, 2016).
Application Deadline: April 1, 2016, 5:00 PM
