The Weidenfeld Translation Prize, funded through the generosity of Lord Weidenfeld, is one of the most interesting events hosted by the College.

 

It is an annual award, with a panel of distinguished judges, from inside and beyond the University, that rewards the best translation published in the past year. The prize is awarded to the translator, and so recognises one of the great overlooked talents of literature.

The prize is located at St Anne's with good reason. The College has established itself as a centre of excellence in translation studies with the development of a close working relationship between the English Literature, Classics and Modern Langaues schools. This is reflected in the increasing number of students reading for joint degrees in Classics and English, English and Modern Langauges, and Classics and Modern Langauges.
