book cover for An Austrian Avant-Garde

Professor Patrick Greaney was awarded the College of Arts and Sciences’ Kayden Translation Award for his translation of An Austrian Avant-Garde, the first English-language anthology of post-1945 experimental writing from Austria. The bilingual volume features texts from Nobel-prize winning author Elfriede Jelinek, the members of the 1950s Vienna Group, and a number of contemporary writers, and it highlights the work of women writers. Professor Greaney co-edited the volume with Professor Sabine Zelger from the Kirchliche Pädagogische Hochschule in Vienna and Krems, Austria. 

The Kayden Award includes support for a symposium on translation, which will be held in 2022.
