Speaker information

Dr Hephzibah Israel, is a Lecturer in Translation Studies, University of Edinburgh. She has researched literary and sacred translations in the South Asian context, with a particular focus on Protestant religious, language and identity politics.

The Bible’s history in India is a history of translation and cultural transfer.
