The Joseph and Rebecca Meyerhoff Center for Jewish Studies at University 
of Maryland, College Park is hosting a conference on Biblical translation 
on Sunday, April 26, 1998.  College Park is situated just outside of 
Washington, D.C.

Papers are invited on topics relating to the translation of the Hebrew 
Bible in ancient, medieval, or modern times as a process seen within its 
historical, social and cultural context.  Possible topic areas include 
biblical translation as it affects, or is affected by, literary or other 
approaches to the Bible; ideology; doctrine; use within a religious 
community; popular perceptions of the Bible; publishers' concerns; 
ethical issues, and the like.  Proceedings will be published in the 
Center's series, "Studies and Texts in Jewish History and Culture."

In keeping with the Meyerhoff Center's role both in academe and in the 
broader community, it is hoped that papers, in addition to possessing 
scholarly merit, will be accessible to the educated public.
