The translator-in-residence post is co-funded by Dublin City Council, Literature Ireland and the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies.
The call for applications from Japanese translators for literary translator-in-residence is now open.
The bursary is awarded to a practising literary translator of established track record who is working on a translation of a work of contemporary Irish literature. In 2019, the bursary will be awarded to a translator working into the Japanese language.
Travel and living expenses are covered by Literature Ireland, while accommodation and work space are provided by the Trinity Centre for Literary and Cultural Translation, Trinity College Dublin. The successful applicant is asked to work closely with students on the MPhil in Literary Translation (1–2 contact hours per week), to assist in the organisation of public workshops/talks, and to hold one public event near the end of their stay, focusing on their translation work.
