Subject: Paul Celan Fellowships

The division of Europe deeply impaired the East-West reception of
literature and debates in the humanities and social sciences for
decades. The effects are still felt today. The IWM translation
program was established in 1987 to help fill the resulting gaps in
the relevant literature on both sides and thus improve access to and
exchange between formerly isolated cultures. To date, more than 60
translators from 14 countries have been invited to work at the
Institute. An overview of translations published under the auspices
of the Paul Celan Program is available at

The program bears the name of the poet and translator Paul Celan,
whose work - perhaps more than any other's in the 20th century -
thrives on the diversity of European cultures and also mediates
between them.
