The Hemispheric Institute is a multilingual institution, and proposals may be submitted in English, Spanish, and/or Portuguese. We also accept and encourage proposals for projects in any other language of the Americas, as long as they are submitted together with a full translation (publishable standard) of your proposal into one of these three languages.

Interested scholars, artists, and activists should submit a short proposal (see specific language requirements above) of 1-2 pages, single space, which includes:

-A description of the intellectual content.

-A sample translation(s) of 1 paragraph drawn from your project’s intellectual content into any and all languages that you would like your Cuaderno to appear in beyond its “original” language. Please ensure you submit translations of publishable standard, and note that HemiPress cannot provide translation services.
