International Literature Award – Haus der Kulturen der Welt

The literatures of the world are the focus of the International Literature Award, awarded annually since 2009 by the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the foundation “Stiftung Elementarteilchen” for foreign-language works of fiction translated into German for the first time.

In the years 2009 to 2016, 49 works by 46 authors and 49 translators were nominated for the prize. Over the last eight years, 25 personalities from the fields of literary criticism, translation and academia have sat on the juries, whose line-ups change from year to year.

This index provides an overview of the jury members so far, of the works nominated for the shortlist, of the authors, and the translators as well as the speeches and laudations.

Index only available in German language.
