ANNOUNCING OUR 2014 GRANTEES
As always, we had a difficult time deciding on our grantees, given that we received many worthy applications for writing and translation projects during each round. But this round was particularly hard: we received a record high of 110 proposals, from across the world and in many languages, compared to the typical 30 to 40 applications. That’s good news in terms of what appears to be a growing commitment to autonomous, politically engaged writing and translating on antiauthoritarian themes as well as from anarchist(ic) perspectives. Sadly, the IAS could only fund four proposals based on our available funds—all the more reason we hope that you’ll consider becoming a monthly sustainer in order for the IAS to grant more awards the next time around (see below).
That said, we’re honored to congratulate the following people on their IAS grant awards! Here’s a glimpse of their upcoming projects:

Lexicon Pamphlet: Gender (in Romanian)

by Jamie Heckert
Genul este un sistem de repartizare în categorii a sinelui și a celorlalți (incluzând corpuri, dorințe, comportamente) care se găsește în fiecare aspect al culturii și al societății, interconectat cu alte categorii și ierarhii (rasă, clasă, sexualitate, vârstă, abilități și multe altele). Numeroase aspecte biologice (de exemplu organele genitale, cromozomii, constituția corpului) sunt interpretate în așa fel încât oamenii sunt incluși în mod natural în una din două categorii: bărbat și femeie. Dar dacă ne uităm mai îndeaproape, s-ar putea să chestionăm natura genului. Biologia, umană sau alta, este minunat de diversă.
