The “Salzburg Literary Archives” – a literary-historical research centre of the University, the City and the Land of Salzburg – were formally opened on 19 April 2012. They collect and investigate living and posthumous estates of authors, such as Barbara Frischmuth, Peter Handke, Gert Jonke and Stefan Zweig, with ties to Salzburg and make them available for academic research.
With a view to promoting (Austrian or foreign) translators or the translation of Austrian contemporary literature, subsidies, grants and awards are available from the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture. Click here for more information.
