Sheikh Zayed Book Award Seminars at Abu Dhabi International Book Fair 2019

Organised by Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi

The Sheikh Zayed Book Award honors the outstanding achievements of innovators and thinkers in literature, the arts and humanities in Arabic and other languages.

Launched in 2006 and covering nine categories, the award promotes creativity, advances Arabic literature and culture, and provides new opportunities for Arabic-language writers. Authors writing about Arab culture and civilisation in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish also are recognised by the award.

In addition to honoring writers and their publishers, the award includes three seminars to address the important role that translators play in helping bridge the cultural and literary gap between Arab and non-Arab readers and authors.

Seminar 1
- Translation as a Tool of Cultural Exchange
The panel will discuss the importance of translation and provide insights into intercultural writing trends.

Moderated by Claudia Kramatschek
