The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has named Neil Blackadder a literature fellow in translation. Blackadder, who will serve as the Program in Translation and Intercultural Communication (PTIC) Translator in Residence for spring 2023, is one of 24 fellows awarded grants to translate world literature and make these works accessible to English-speaking audiences.
He will use the fellowship to support the translation from the German of “Fatherland” by Anne Weber.
The PTIC program resides within the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS), and provides support for translation workshops, guest lectures, study abroad and new courses. The Translator in Residence is co-sponsored by PIIRS, the Humanities Council and the Lewis Center for the Arts.
