Call for Proposals 2018-19

Confluence Translation Conference, April 6, 2019

Confluence brings together translators, interpreters, educators, and others interested in the field of translation, including its literary, practical, and philosophical dimensions. The conference offers interpretation and translation-focused workshops and presentations, and opportunities for discussion, networking, career development, and celebration.

The Confluence organizers seek proposals for presentations and workshops to be held on Saturday, April 6, 2019, at Montgomery College, covering issues of interest to the translation and interpretation communities.

Saturday, April 6, 2019, morning and afternoon: conference sessions will feature a variety of concurrent workshops and presentations on translation, interpretation, and translation studies. The day’s schedule will offer opportunities for informal networking.

The organizers plan to group the workshops and presentations according to four tracks:

  1. Techniques, practices, and problem-solving in translation/interpretation
  2. Business of translation/interpretation
  3. Art of literary translation
  4. Education in translation/interpretation

Proposals for workshops, panels, or other presentations are to include requirements for room setup and technical needs, if any. Conference rooms will be equipped with a computer workstation, USB ports, CD player, internet access, and projection.

Proposals are due by midnight Friday, January 10, 2019.

It is expected that proposers will be informed about decisions by Friday, March 1, 2019. At the discretion of the Confluence organizers, the deadline for submission of proposals by persons affiliated with Montgomery College may be extended to allow submissions through the second week of the spring semester, to accommodate the College’s winter break schedule. For the purpose of achieving a well-rounded conference, the organizers may solicit proposals at any time or may ask proposers to alter or consolidate presentations.
