Prof. Heekyoung Cho Receives NEH and ACLS Fellowships for 2014-15

The Department of Asian Languages and Literture is pleased to announce that Prof. Heekyoung Cho has received a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Fellowship for University Teachers as well as an American Council of Learned Society (ACLS) Fellowship for 2014-15. These grants will allow her to devote herself to research for one year. She is currently working on a book project, “Translation’s Forgotten History: Russian Literature, Japanese Mediation, and the Formation of Modern Korean Literature,” which explores the meaning and function of translation in the formation of modern national literatures by examining Korean intellectuals’ appropriation of Russian realist literature through Japanese language and culture in the process of searching for their own modern literary form in the early twentieth century.
