May 18-29, 2015 in Misano, Italy

The application period for the 2015 Nida School of Translation Studies is now open and will remain open until January 31, 2015. The Nida School of Translation Studies (NSTS), an annual two-week seminar, brings together experts from translation studies, religious discourse translation, and other cognate disciplines in a fully transdisciplinary working environment.

Their transdisciplinary nature allows theorists and practitioners from many fields to cross disciplinary and methodological boundaries and develop new ways of thinking about translation and other fields of research.

Andrew Fuller and His Controversies Conference

Theological controversy is a perennial feature of the life of God’s people in this world. At such times, the church is best served by doughty and winsome champions of the truth. Such a man was Andrew Fuller, who, though he engaged heartily with numerous theological issues of his day, never lost his love for those whom he opposed and defended the truth with winsomeness. Southern Seminary's Andrew Fuller Conference will explore the various challenges to biblical Christianity Fuller tackled with the goal that we might be better equipped to serve God in our generation.

Website Feature: ETS Members Publications

For years the Society published an annual list of new and forthcoming publications by its members in the Annual Newsletter. This year marks a significant transition as we move the publications listing online. With this new system, ETS members can now login and post their new publications online as they are published. The online listing will allow anyone to view the most recent publications by our members, search for publications by subject, and current members will be able to search for publications by author. The five most recent publications will be listed in the right margin of the homepage. (This section will appear once the first new publications have been entered.)

The New Publications page and each of the subject listings is RSS compatible, so whether you want to keep track of all things new or you want to follow a particular subject, just add the feed to your favorite RSS reader and you'll stay up to date with the latest in evangelical scholarship from ETS members. Follow the links on the search page for all the various access options.

New Website Feature: ETS Career Connections

The ETS Career Connections pages are designed to help potential employers and job candidates to connect. Through the Career Connections Candidate Listing service, ETS members who are seeking academic employment will be able to post basic contact, education, and speciality information. Candidates will also be able to post a PDF of their CV materials so that interested employers will be able to see their credentials in more detail.

Through the Career Connections Opportunity Listing service, institutions will be able to post new job listings. With space for detailed position descriptions and contact information, institutions will be able to advertise clearly their open positions to evangelical scholars around the world.
