This project focuses on the cognitive and linguistic consequences of the translation process, especially in the Christian context. It brings together anthropologists and linguists working on conversion, cultural transmission and translation theory, as well as on various case studies, whose geography comprises Oceania, Amazonia, Yucatan, Sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East, Europe, Alaska and Chukotka (Russia), and whose temporal frame spreads from the Early Medieval times to Spanish colonization of the Americas and to the present time. The first workshop of the series, “Conversion, translation, interpretation”, took place on September 18, 2017. The present workshop addresses the questions of change in culture, social organization, but also language as a delicate interplay between continuity and discontinuity, as well as the problem of transmutation and the way it accompanies cultural transmission and change.
