What is Confluence?
Confluence is a celebration of translation and interpretation that brings together translators, interpreters, educators, students, and others interested in the field of translation, including its literary, practical, and philosophical dimensions.
Confluence features an annual professional conference offering workshops and presentations focusing on interpretation and translation, opportunities for discussion, networking, career development, and celebration. Additional student-oriented, translation-themed events are held throughout the year, including an annual Open Mic celebration of International Translation Day.
Starting fall 2019, the Confluence Translation Conference and Open Mic event will
be coordinated by the Humanities area under the leadership of Dr. Sharon Fechter,
Dean of Humanities, and the conference director, Prof. Ivonne Bruneau-Botello, Chair
of the Humanities Department at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring campus. MC community
members will collaborate with DC Area Literary Translators (DC-ALT) to offer the annual
conference and other events to MC students and faculty. Other academic institutions
and community members who believe in the importance of translation and interpretation
for a global community are welcome to attend.
