Bible in Ancient and Modern Media & Nida Institute for Biblical Scholarship at the American Bible Society

Room: International 4 (International Level) - Marriott

Theme: Intersemiotic Translation: a new media approach

Our present new media age (mobile technologies in particular) is enacting an intersemiotic translation of the book as a material cultural phenomenon. Bible and book are inextricably bound, so how is this intersemiotic translation of book shaping the way bible is imagined and practiced? This session is not looking primarily at how the content of the bible is translated from one language to another but how the material media translation of the bible as book shapes the way we make meaning of its stories.
