In late November 2017, Laney College’s French instructor, Dr. Zujian Zhang, received the Fu Lei Translation and Publishing Award. He was recognized with this prestigious award for his translation of “La misère du monde, Pierre Bourdieu” from French to Chinese.
The Fu Lei Translation and Publishing Award, founded by the French Embassy in China in 2009, is dedicated to honoring prominent Chinese translators who work hard to introduce French literature to Chinese readers. It is named after Fu Lei (1908-1966), one of the most renowned Chinese translators. Fu Lei is known for his translations of Honore de Balzac (1799-1850), Voltaire (1694-1778) and Romain Rolland (1866-1944).
Congratulations to Dr. Zhang for this huge accomplishment!
