Leveraging on the understanding that learning and knowledge are free from geographical barriers Ahmedabad University has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Delhi-based JCB Literature Foundation (JCBLF) to groom and mentor interested students in the fast-growing literary translation segment.
The MoU was signed by Mr B M Shah, Registrar, Ahmedabad University and Ms Meghna Verma, Head of Operations, JCBLF on 15 November 2021.
Important Features of the MoU
A Diploma Course in Literary Translation will be offered by the Centre for Learning Futures at Ahmedabad University from 2022-23.
