The cultural services of the French Embassy of the United States have given another confirmation of their generosity and support by awarding $9500 to The Glissant Translation Project, in addition to the $9000 they bestowed to the Center for French and Francophone Studies last year.
The 2017 grant has already allowed for the rights acquisition, translation and publication of Introduction à une poétique du divers (1996, translator Celia Britton), Mémoires des esclavages (2007, translator Charles Forsdick), Les entretiens de Baton Rouge (2008, translator Kate M. Cooper), L'Imaginaire des langues (2010, translator Celia Britton). These four fundamental works will be published simultaneously by Liverpool University Press, a most distinguished academic publisher, in 2019.
