Dize to edit ‘Global Black Writers in Translation’

Nathan Dize, an assistant professor of French in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis, has been appointed co-editor of the new trade book series “Global Black Writers in Translation.”


Published by Vanderbilt University Press, the series will publish a variety of texts by authors of African descent translated from their source languages into English. Aims for the series include expanding literary canons by foregrounding diasporic Black writers; addressing the historic underrepresentation of Black translators; and making the literatures of historically marginalized groups more accessible, with an emphasis on potential classroom use. The first series titles are anticipated in 2025. Read more here.
