Requirements for Participation

Bible Translation

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Bible Translation Section provides a special opportunity for bringing together academic and practical perspectives on Bible Translation. It focuses on current trends in Bible Translation and on the implications that developments in Translation and Biblical Studies have for Bible Translation. This year the translation session is interested in

a) papers focusing on interdisciplinary translation issues and

b) papers touching specifically on the revision of Bible translations.

Those who have been or are actually involved in specific revision project and thus, would have “inside view” as well as those who want to offer a critical comparative study of the results of a revision process, are all invited to participate. Theoretical and or practical reflections on the very “raison d’être” of revisions are also more than welcome.
