As a collaborative program between PKUASC and the Foundation of Australian Studies in China (FASIC), the Hu Zhuanglin Distinguished Translator Fellowship will be selected and awarded annually by an academic committee, whose Director is Professor David Walker, BHP Billiton Chair Professor of Australian Studies at Peking University.
The closing date for the 2014 Fellowship applications is July 31. Preference will be given to an established translator who can demonstrate a proven track record in translating Australian writings in humanities, social sciences or literature since 2000. Applicants should also specify any agreements they may have signed to publish the work they have proposed to translate or their plans to have the translation published.
One 2014 Fellowship will be awarded to a well-established translator, who is expected to be a Fellow at the PKUASC for three months, from September 1 to November 30. During the term of the Fellowship, the translator will be based at the PKUASC, conducting his/her own translation work and contributing as appropriate to the PKUASC. This may involve a public lecture or guest lectures to students studying translation.
