      *Â"Translation, Identity, and HeterogeneityÂ"* International
      Translations Conference December 7-9, 2007 Lima, Peru _PRESS RELEASE_
      The Eugene Nida Institute for Biblical Scholarship at the American
      Bible Society is sponsoring its third international conference on
      translation in Lima, Peru, December 7-9, 2007. The theme of the
      conference, Â"Translation, Identity and Heterogeneity,Â" takes on a
      special urgency today because communication, language, translation
      studies, and biblical scholarship have discovered new frames of
      reference in a post-modern world, one that is characterized by issues
      of globalization, immigration, post-colonialism, and localization.
      The Lima Conference will explore many aspects of this theme,
      including: translation and minority languages; translation and the
      emergence of new languages (creoles, pidgins, street-languages),
      translation and language preservation; the power of the translated
      (biblical) text; translation and boundaries; translation and cultural
      space; translation and cultural mediation; translation and the
      politics of language. The Conference aims to support high-level
      academic discourse on a theme of growing importance for the academy,
      the professions, the churches, and other sectors of industry and
      society. The program will consist of three plenary speakers and small-
      group lectures and panel presentations. Please submit proposals that
      fit these criteria in the language of your choice no later than
      September 1, 2007 to Steve Berneking
      <mailto:SBerneking@...> at the American Bible Society.
