CCR Translation Contest for Young Scholars Now Open for Registration!

The Chinese Cultural Relics (CCR) Editorial Board and the East View Press are pleased to announce that the first CCR Translation Contest for Young Scholars will start on Friday, January 1, 2016. Open to current graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and young professionals in Chinese archaeology, history, ancient architecture and art history and other relevant fields, this international translation contest invites participants to work on the translations, from Chinese into English, of selected sections of articles on new archaeological reports and in-depth research treatises in the forthcoming issues of CCR.

The prize winners will not only be encouraged, with a travel stipend, to attend the award ceremony held during the 2016 SEAA Worldwide Conference (June 8–12 in Cambridge and Boston), but will also receive money awards (three prizes of $1,000, $750 and $500 respectively), and get their complete translations published in the CCR. In addition, all participants who demonstrate excellence in academic translation may be offered to join the CCR translation team and have their name featured in CCR in the near future.

Online registration is now open! The contest will start on Friday, January 1, 2016, when the translation materials are available, and the deadline of translation submission is Thursday, March 31, 2016 (UTC -05:00). For online registration and more details, please visit
