Workshop | Christianity Translated


Next week's workshop "Christianity Translated: Knowledge Circulation and Epistemic Transformation through Missionary Enterprise, 16th-19th ct." emanated from the work of the mission group and research field 4. It takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday, 11-12 June 2013. Starting from the hypothesis that the religious and cultural encounters facilitated by Christian missions had a profound impact on both sides in the interaction, this workshop asks how epistemic changes were inaugurated by missionary activities in Asia, both in the mission field and on home ground.
