Jason Grunebaum Receives Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts

The National Endowment for the Arts recently awarded Jason Grunebaum, Senior Lecturer in the Department of South Asian Languages and Civilizations, a $25,000 grant to support his translation of Manzoor Ahtesham’s Hindi novel The Tale of the Missing Man.  Published in 1995, Ahtesham’s third novel playfully explores what it means to be Muslim in post-colonial India.

Grunebaum won a Fulbright fellowship to study in India in 1995 and later served as an Urdu/Hindi interpreter with the International Committee of the Red Cross in Kashmir. His other awards include a 2005 PEN Translation Fund grant as well as a 2006 fellowship by the American Literary Translators Association. He will collaborate on this project with Ulrike Stark, Director of Graduate Studies of the Department of South Asian Languages and Civilizations.
