Description
The International Center for Writing and Translation (ICWT) at the University of California, Irvine fosters the study of writing and supports writing projects among faculty, students, and the broader public. The concept of "writing" supported by the center is capacious and includes various forms of literary and cultural communication. The center sponsors readings, conferences, and academic presentations that consider writing in various contexts throughout the world and in various US communities. The center also supports the work and study of translation, defined broadly to include not only the movement from one language to another but also the carrying of communication from one context or culture to another. Since its founding, the center has awarded stipends and fellowships for faculty and graduate students at UC Irvine to carry out fiction and non-fiction writing projects and undertake academic research on questions related to writing, cross-cultural contact, and translation. Keeping in close contact with various writing programs and academic departments at UC Irvine, the ICWT cultivates an awareness of the international world of letters and steers research and creative activity in vital, new directions. This collection comprises the records of the center including event and conference materials, grant documentation, reports, meeting minutes and notes, newsletters, publicity, annual reports, information related to Executive and Advisory Boards and Committees, fundraising documentation, awards, and writers series documentation.
