Peras Gorgias – translating Hebrew monographs into English

Peras Gorgias – פרס גורגיאס

Gorgias Press launched Peras Gorgias – פרס גורגיאס in 2018-2019. Peras Gorgias facilitates the publication in English of exceptional monographs by Hebrew-speaking author sin order to expand their readership. Based on the decision of an internationally renowned panel of judges, every two years, Peras Gorgias will recognize three exceptional contributions to the fields of Bible, Ancient Near East, and Jewish Studies by Hebrew-speaking scholars who face barriers to publishing their work in English and who are in the early stages of their career.

Applications for the 2020-2021 cycle of Peras Gorgias are now open. Hebrew-speaking emerging scholars are invited to apply for this prize. Winners will receive a book contract and academic editing of their unedited, English-language book draft.

We strongly encourage applications from scholars from underrepresented and marginalized backgrounds.


The deadline for the current cycle is 31 December 2020.
