Our first Linguistics Circle meeting is this Thursday, May 15, 7-9pm. To kick off the new academic year, Iain Sungmin Park, PhD candidate in New Testament, will be presenting a paper entitled “Paul’s Code Choices in Acts 21:37–22:29: Macro and Micro Sociolinguistic Approaches to Multilingual Paul.” This paper explores Paul’s multilingual abilities, and argues that it was possible that Paul spoke Latin in Acts 21-22.
We will have a hybrid meeting, both in person at MDC and online on Zoom. Those who want to join via Zoom should contact Dr. Dave Yoon.
The Linguistics Circle is a monthly gathering of students, faculty, and others who are interested in biblical linguistics. Each gathering, we have a discussion of a biblical linguistic topic, based on a paper presented by someone in our community—either a student, professor, or a volunteer or invited guest. Anyone with an interest in biblical linguistics is welcome to join, regardless of experience or knowledge in the field. To join, email firstname.lastname@example.org to gain access to the CBLTE (Centre for Biblical Linguistics, Translation, and Exegesis) site where announcements and papers are posted.
