IWM and ERSTE Foundation Paul Celan Fellowship Program

IWM and ERSTE Foundation Paul Celan Fellowship Program

About IWM and ERSTE Foundation:
The Institute for Human Sciences (IWM) is an independent institute for advanced study in the humanities and social sciences based in Vienna. Since its foundation in 1982, it has promoted intellectual exchange between East and West, between academia and society, and between a variety of disciplines and schools of thought.

The Paul Celan Fellowship Program of IWM and ERSTE Foundation aims to help overcome deficits and asymmetries in the exchange of ideas and reception of scholarly literature which result from the division of Europe in the 20th century.
Therefore, the Paul Celan Fellowships support East-West, West-East and East-East translations of canonical texts as well as contemporary key works in the Humanities, Social Sciences and in the field of Cultural Studies. Special emphasis is put on translations of relevant works written by East European authors and/or by female scholars. A thematic relation to one of the IWM ’s research fields is likewise welcomed.
Please note that no applications for works of fiction and poetry are being accepted.
