A Shanghai-based academic publisher is looking for a translator to work on a book translation project (from Chinese to English). The book is titled Studies in the History of Ideas: The Formation of Important Modern Chinese Political Terms《觀念史研究：中國現代重要政治術語的形成》, written by Jin Guantao (金觀濤) and Liu Qingfeng (劉青峰). The book is based on an expansive database on Chinese political thought from 1830 to 1930 that was originally compiled under the auspices of Jin and Liu while they were at the Research Centre for Contemporary Chinese Culture, Institute of Chinese Studies, Chinese University of Hong Kong. It was first published in 2008 by the Research Centre for Contemporary Chinese Culture under the Chinese University Press, and republished in China in 2010.
Professor Jin was Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Chinese Studies and Director of the Research Centre for Contemporary Chinese Culture from 1989 to 2008. Currently he is the chair professor at National Chengchi University, Taiwan, and China Academy of Art, China. Professor Liu, formerly Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Chinese Studies, is now retired.
The book currently has a contract with Brill under its Ideas, History and Modern China series <www.brill.com/ihmc>, to be edited by Theresa Lee, University of Guelph (Canada). The translator’s name will appear on the cover page and will be remunerated with a translation fee of USD $25,000.
The book can be previewed at amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/CUHK-Cultural-Studies-Series-Formation%20book/dp/B00FVSBVJ0.
