I told a Seminary Co-op employee about LT local and also about the bookstore integration program. She turned out to be an LT user too & said she\'d pass on the info to the relevant people!

Entering this place for the first time, I felt I\'d died and gone to heaven. I miss it every time I have to go into a Barnes & Noble.

Robert Alter: The Challenges of Translating the Bible - Neubauer Collegium (Thursday, October 8 at 6pm)
A translation that does some justice to the Hebrew Bible must make some effort to convey in English the subtlety, the expressive compactness, the precision of word-choice, the evocative use of syntax, and related stylistic features of the Hebrew. All this is challenging because the structure of modern English is so different from that of ancient Hebrew. In this Neubauer Collegium Director's Lecture, Robert Alter will demonstrate his own struggles with these issues through examples from his own translation.

Opening Remarks to be delivered by Jonathan Lear, Roman Family Director of the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society and John U. Nef Distinguished Service Professor at the Committee on Social Thought and in the Department of Philosophy. (lilithcat)… (more)
Event location: Mandel Hall, 1131 East 57th Street, Chicago
