UI Translation Alum Thow Wins Fulbright Research Grant

Thow

Diana Thow, a graduate of the University of Iowa's Translation Workshop, has been awarded a 2009-10 Fulbright Research Grant to Italy for a project entitled "Amelia Rosselli: Across Language."

While in Italy, Thow will work in the archives (located in the north of Italy in a town called Pavia and on the outskirts of Rome) that contain the papers, manuscripts, journals and correspondence of the poet Amelia Rosselli, the subject of Thow's MFA thesis at Iowa. She will continue to translate Rosselli's poetry, and compile an edition of her uncollected English writings.

Thow is a graduate of the MFA program in literary translation and former editor of eXchanges magazine.
