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.
