Eight members of the Brown faculty have been awarded funding to have their research translated into another language through the Brown in Translation program. Sponsored by the Office of International Affairs, Brown in Translation provides funding for the translation of three books (up to $5,000 each) and 10 scholarly articles (up to $1,000 each) authored by Brown faculty in the humanitites and social sciences each year. The aim of the program is to make the research and writing of faculty more widely available to colleagues internationally and to further raise Brown’s name and visibility across the globe. A committee comprised of Brown faculty and International Affairs staff is appointed to select publications for funding. This year's recipients are Gerhard Richter, professor of German studies; Sherine Hamdy, assistant professor of anthropology; Cole Swensen, professor of literary arts; Vazira F-Y Zamindar, associate professor of history; Linda Cook, professor of political science; Evelyn Hu-DeHart, professor of history; Keisha Khan-Perry, assistant professor of Africana studies; and Melani Cammett, assistant professor of political science.
