Calouste Gulbenkian Translation Series Project

ARI Literature Foundation is coordinating the Calouste Gulbenkian Translation Series Project. 

The Armenian Communities Department of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation has launched a translation series, which aims to make seminal texts in the humanities and the social sciences available in Armenian.

The translations are in Eastern or Western Armenian. Through this initiative we work towards making texts available to scholars and students principally in Armenia to facilitate the advancement of intellectual discourse. This initiative will also contribute to the modernisation of the Armenian language, incorporating into it new vocabulary, and increase the pool of translators into and out of Armenian.
