The Centre for the Study of Korea (CSK) at the University of Toronto hosts the annual James Scarth Gale translation prize for non-fiction pieces of writing on Korea. The top prize is awarded a sum of $2,500.
The objective of the prize is to promote, and make public, materials useful for teachers of undergraduate courses on modern Korea. Possible translations include academic essays, series of newspaper articles, magazine features, or original archival sources, to name just a few.
Submissions for this year’s competition must be received at the CSK by September 1, 2008.
For more information see the CSK website at www.utoronto.ca/csk, where you can also find last year’s winner, Memories of a Zainichi Korean Childhood by Kang Sangjung, translated by Robin Fletcher.
