Bio: PhD Candidate (ABD) at the University of Illinois at Chicago in Germanic Studies. I am writing my disseration on German-Arab writers, both those who write in German and those who have been translated into German. I have six years experience translating Arabic into English for the United States Navy (TS/SI/TK/Gamma/Orcon clearances) and 12 years experience translating German into English (mostly legal and medical). I am interested in grants that would allow me to tackle my first literary translation project.
