Annual Conference of the Andrew F. Walls Centre for the Study of Africa and Asian Christianity: Bible Translation and Scholarship in Asia and Africa - 27-29 June 2017

2017 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of the English edition of the Jerusalem Bible, edited by Rev Alexander Jones on the present campus of Liverpool Hope University. To celebrate and reflect on this occasion, the Andrew Walls Centre will host an international conference on translating and editing biblical texts. The conference will particularly explore the impact of Bible translations on the transmission, preservation and shaping of local languages – not least in unexpected directions.

For further information, please contact Prof Daniel Jeyaraj. Proposals for papers are welcomed: please submit to Prof. Jeyaraj a proposal (up to 300 words) before 1 March 2017.
