The Martha Cheung Award for Best English Article in Translation Studies by an Early Career Scholar

The Jiao Tong Baker Centre for Translation and Intercultural Studies is pleased to invite applications for the next Martha Cheung Award, to be conferred in April 2020

The Martha Cheung Award aims to recognize research excellence in the output of early career researchers, and to allow them, like Professor Cheung herself, to make their voices heard in the international arena and play a role in charting the future directions of research in the discipline. The restriction of the award to articles published in English is also intended to ensure consistency in the assessment process.
