*Call for Translators - an update*
Harvard University Press and Tel Aviv University Press is about to launch a new series of bilingual editions of classical Hebrew and Aramaic texts in facing English translation (on the model of Loeb and I Tatti). The new series, made possible by a donation of Mr. Joseph Hackmey, will be named *The Hackmey Hebrew Classical Library*. The project is under the direction of Prof. Aviad Kleinberg, director of Tel Aviv University Press.
We are currently looking for high-quality translations of Hebrew and Aramaic texts in all genres - from poetry to halachic discussions and from philosophy to chronicles -from the post-biblical period to the *haskalah*. We invite scholars working in these fields to submit proposals for English translations from Hebrew and Aramaic. The translations will be accompanied by an introduction, short explanatory notes and a bibliography.*
The heading says "an update," but this is the first I've heard of the project. It sounds exciting.
