Dear all, apologies for cross posting,

Please find below a letter that can be forwarded to Heads of Department in = your institution, and to Chairs of relevant committees serving scholarly so= cieties. You will see that it concerns an initiative organised by the Trans= formational HPS network, to arrange for the translation of new HPS research= from scholars in the Global South who do not normally or regularly publish= in English. We would appreciate it if everyone on this list who sees value= in this proposal, could forward this message to any relevant body that mig= ht pledge the funds we are seeking. Do not worry about duplicating efforts,= as a demonstration of widespread interest will be most helpful.

Finally, we are still hoping to find at least one more HPS researcher who i= s capable of reading and assessing abstracts in Arabic. If you would like t= o volunteer please do get in touch.

Yours, Dominic Berry, David Ludwig, Lindsey Breitwieser, Harun K=FC=E7=FCk and Die= go Ballestero

To whom it may concern,

This message is written on behalf of the Transformational HPS network, an i= nternational network supporting researchers who are queering HPS, decolonis= ing HPS, and centring disability in HPS. You can learn more about the netwo= rk here: https://www.transformationalhps.org/

We have recently launched an initiative, to arrange for the translation of = new HPS research from scholars in the Global South who do not normally or r= egularly publish in English. We have already succeeded in gathering volunte= ers to read submitted abstracts, collectively covering 6 languages that are= spoken widely in the Global South. The languages and panels are detailed b= elow.

We have now reached the stage where we need to gather funding, and are appe= aling to universities, departments, and scholarly societies to partner with= the scheme. Pledging a minimum donation of =A3400 earns any organisation t= he chance to be listed as a partner to this initiative in all publications = on the Transformational HPS website relating to it. We offer this opportuni= ty as a concrete action that organisations in the global north can take tow= ards redistributing research resources in a more equitable manner, one that= increases the representation of otherwise marginalised scholars, and incre= ases opportunities for future global networks of research and collaboration= .

Pledged funds will only be requested provided we meet our overall goal of = =A310,000, which we anticipate will be sufficient to pay for the translatio= n of 6 academic papers each less than 10,000 words. Further details as to t= he scheme can be found here: https://www.transformationalhps.org/translatio= ns---seeking-hps-scholars-with-language-skills.html

To register your pledge, please write to Dr Dominic Berry on d.berry@bham.a= c.uk The deadline is March 31st 2022. We hope this deadline will give any organi= sation sufficient time to arrange any necessary meetings to evaluate this p= roposal.

Yours, Dominic Berry, David Ludwig, Lindsey Breitwieser, Harun K=FC=E7=FCk and Die= go Ballestero
