GINT

Geisteswissenschaften International Nonfiction Translators Prize

Every second year, the Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels (German Publishers’ and Booksellers’ Association) and the Frankfurt Book Fair New York join together to award the GINT Translation Prize.

This prize is organized by Geisteswissenschaften International and Frankfurt Book Fair and is designed to steer the attention of English-language scholars and publishers to outstanding German monographs in the humanities. In this regard, the prize complements the successful work in promoting translations that the German Publishers’ and Booksellers’ Association, in cooperation with the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, the Foreign Office, and VG WORT, has been pursuing since 2008 with the program of Geisteswissenschaften International.

In 2018/2019 the international jury was composed of: Shelley Frisch, translator and jury chair, Sarah Pybus, translator and winner of the first GINT Prize in 2015, Paula Bradish of Hamburger Edition Publishers and translator, and Emma Rault, translator and winner of the GINT Prize in 2017.
