Where: University of Oxford, UK
When: April 2 to April 5, 2017
We are seeking applications from research students to translate scholarly articles from Japanese to English for the second BAJS (British Association for Japanese Studies) Translation Workshop to be held at Wadham College, Oxford.
This is a fully funded workshop. Through generous support from BAJS and the Wadham College Conference Series, travel grants are available for participants. Accommodation in College (including three meals a day starting from dinner on Sunday April 2 and ending with lunch on Wednesday 5) are also offered to all participants free of charge.
Participants will work on their translations over the six months leading up to the workshop in April 2017. All student translators and a matching number of scholars and experts will then convene at Wadham College for the workshop from April 2 to 5. We will work through each translation individually, smoothing and standardizing, sharing the problems we faced and discussing issues related to Japanese-English translation.
There are several opportunities for publication of the translations (if of sufficient quality and subject to copyright permission) including with the SOAS Occasional Translations in Japanese Studies.
Applicants should be native or near-native in English with a research-level proficiency in Japanese.
Please apply with a cv and short cover letter detailing your interest in the workshop and Japan more generally.
Application should be made to Jonathan Service at <email@example.com> by October 15, 2016.
