Trinity Centre for Literary and Cultural Translation

Trinity Centre for Literary and Cultural Translation at Trinity College Dublin is the first centre of its kind in Ireland. The Centre’s mission is to develop, promote and support literary and cultural translation in Ireland and to bring the best of Irish literature to the world and the best of world literature to Ireland.

The Trinity Centre for Literary and Cultural Translation is a cultural hub for students working in many languages across Trinity, for Dublin’s international multilingual community, for Trinity alumni worldwide, and for everyone interested in the art of translation and cultural exchange.

The Centre is home to the award-winning M.Phil. in Literary Translation, which attracts students speaking a variety of languages from across the globe, and it has a vibrant Ph.D. community of scholars working at the cutting edge of language and translation. It provides short-term, high impact residencies for visiting translators, and it has a dynamic public engagement programme of lectures, webinars and book clubs.

Support for Trinity Centre for Literary and Cultural Translation through Inspiring Generations will provide scholarships for students to pursue postgraduate programmes, fund public lectures, support residencies and further develop the Centre as a meeting place, a ‘house of light’, for everyone interested in culture and language.
