Translation Grants

ASLE Translation Grants support work in ecocriticism from international scholars translating books or other substantial projects (such as longer articles) into English, or from English into other languages. Proposed works should be ecocriticism or fiction/non-fiction with a clear relationship to environmental issues, and must already have been published. We encourage authors to seek publishers for their work. Funding for accepted works to be translated will be up to a possible maximum of $1,000 each.

The Translation Grants will now share a funding pool with our Subvention Grants, and won’t be offered in biennial conference years.  This year, because of postponement of our biennial in-person conference, we are awarding grants in 2021.

Submissions are currently open for 2021 Translation Grants, the deadline for application is June 1, 2021.  Submission instructions are below.
