With the continued rise in human migration, more and more churches are responding to their multilingual and multicultural environments by providing some form of spoken or signed language interpreting. Embedded within church
interpreting is the practice of spontaneously rendering Scripture into other languages, whether in the course of sermons and conference addresses, or in such situations as mediated Bible storying and Scripture re-tellings. In many
areas the practice occurs during the Bible reading phase of church services, even where a print translation exists in the target language. Yet the interface between Bible translation and church interpreting activities remains an uncharted area.
This interactive symposium will offer a stimulating environment for exploration of the theoretical and practical impact of interlingual church interpreting on Bible translation and Scripture engagement, particularly in relation to the live performance of Scripture. Built around guided group discussions and practice-oriented plenary sessions, it will be led by researchers and practitioners from both Bible translation and church interpreting. The topic is of potentially crucial relevance to anyone working in the areas of Bible translation, biblical performance criticism, church interpreting, cross-cultural hermeneutics, orality studies and Scripture engagement in multilingual situations and/or primary oral cultures.
