This intensive workshop for translators specializing in the social sciences and humanities strives to provide a mixture of informative talks by experts, exchange of ideas among colleagues, and ample opportunity for networking with other academic translators spread over three to four days in the idyllic Nahetal near Mainz. There will be two in-depth sessions (in English) with invited speakers (Allison Brown and Anna Frankhauser), one each morning of the workshop. One afternoon will—weather permitting—be set aside for a group hike in the surrounding vineyards and along the Nahe—or up to the ruins of Rheingrafenstein fortress—and Kaffee und Kuchen at the architectural jewel of the Kurmittelhaus in Bad Münster. The other afternoon will be filled with shorter sessions (in English or German) offered by the workshop participants themselves (for details, see below). The workshop will officially end Saturday morning, but those who choose can participate in a cruise up the picturesque Rhine valley.
