The University of Toronto with the generous support of the Korea Foundation
has opened a new Centre for the Study of Korea. Beginning this coming fall,
the Centre will be hosting a translation contest open to the public for
non-fiction materials suitable for teaching modern Korea. Please find the
announcement below. Our website will be up and running (I hope!) by next
I hope you will make your students and colleagues aware of this opportunity.
Thank you very much.
The Centre for Korean Studies at the University of Toronto is
hosting a translation prize for non-fiction pieces of writing on Korea. The
winnder of the top prize will receive an award of Cdn$1000. The objective of
this award is to promote, and make public, materials useful for the teaching
of courses on modern Korea.
Submissions of translations for the first round must be received at the CSK
by September 1, 2007 and should include three copies of the translation and
one copy of the original text. Translations should be from 5-35 pages
(double spaced, twelve point font) and based on texts written during Korea's
long twentieth century, defined as 1894 to the present. A committee of CSK
members will make the selection based on the following criteria:
- pedagogical value for undergraduate teaching
- quality of translation
- availability of similar texts in English
All translations should be submitted with the understanding that, if
selected, the translations will be posted on the CSK website for public use.
The translation prize is open to all members of the public.
