*Translating the Bible in the Long Reformation*

*Led by Dr. Vivienne Westbrook (National Taiwan University).*

The English Department at The Ohio State University will host an
international conference in 2011 on the 400th anniversary of the publication
of the King James (or Authorized) Version of the Bible. Held in *Columbus,
Ohio from May 5-7, 2011*, the conference will focus on the making of the KJV
in the context of Reformation Bible translation and printing as well as on
the KJV’s long literary and cultural influence from Milton and Bunyan to
Faulkner, Woolf, and Toni Morrison. Events will include plenary lectures and
discussions, roundtable seminars, an exhibit by the OSU Rare Books and
Manuscript Library, and a special reading and Q&A session with
Pulitzer-Prize-winning author *Edward P. Jones* (*Lost in the City; The
Known World; All Aunt Hagar’s Children*).  *Submission deadlines have been
extended, so don’t miss the chance to participate in this exciting event!
Please refer to http://kingjamesbible.osu.edu for further conference info,
and contact kjvconference at osu.edu with any questions.*

We are currently seeking *participants for a roundtable seminar entitled
“Translating the Bible in the Long Reformation.”* Each participant will *submit
a short position paper in advance of the conference*; Dr. Westbrook will
then read all the papers, formulate discussion questions, and circulate the
papers and questions to participants. She will determine more precise
schedules and seminar requirements, once enrollments have been reviewed and

Potential topics for this seminar include individual translators or
translations, personal or public, cultural and theological responses to a
particular translation, issues involved in Bible translation, and Bible
publication/distribution from the early sixteenth century into the
seventeenth (from Tyndale to King James). Specific texts are open within the
general area, but should encourage wide-ranging thematic discussion, which
will comprise much of the actual conference.

*Please submit questions or project titles & statements of interest to
kjvconference at osu.edu by September 30, 2010. **Thank you for your interest!*
