Job description
For the four-volume set "The Impact of Idealism - the legacy of post-Kantian German thought" (Cambridge University Press, forthcoming Autumn 2013), we still need a couple of German-English translators with a background in philosophy and/or related disciplines. One contribution relates to aesthetics, one to the philosophy of culture, and one to the philosophy of nature. A knowledge of German Idealism in particular would be a great advantage. We are looking for translators who are English native speakers (or bilingual).   Unfortunately, our budget is such that we can offer only a fairly small remuneration for these translation assignments (£40 per 1000 words; essays range between 6,000 and 10,000 words). However, the translator's work will be widely read in the Idealism volumes, and we would be very grateful for their expertise.    If you, or someone you know, might be interested, please email Dr. Liz Disley with a brief description of your research interests and translation experience, if any.
