Every two years, DIU and SIL co-host the BT Conference where presenters from around the world share ideas and experiences in this academic setting. For the first time ever, DIU is offering an online course, “AL5398: Current Issues in Translation” that provides instruction in addition to attending the BT conference. You will learn about the important themes presented at the BT Conference such as Orality, Scripture Engagement, Consulting, Key Terms and Biblical Exegesis, and Translation Theory.
The BT Conference for 2021 is offered entirely in a virtual setting. Students enrolled in AL5398: Current Issues in Translation will interview a selection of leaders and authors from the BT field, read current topics, engage with their own research topic as part of their own reflection and experience
