SENSE 2020 Conference (5-7 June)

IMG 8365 X 1200x628

The SENSE 2020 Jubilee Conference will be taking place from 6 to 7 June 2020 in Maastricht (or Mestreech to the locals). English-language professionals will come and gather in the city on the Meuse under the theme ‘20/20 (Re)Vision: Honing our skills to meet market challenges’.

Expect a full day of optional pre-conference workshops on the Friday (5 June), with seven workshops to choose from, including one from Brian Mossop. Off-conference activities around Maastricht begin on Saturday morning, a programme of talks with parallel sessions follows on Saturday afternoon, culminating in pre-dinner drinks, or a ‘borrel’ as they say in Dutch, and the gala dinner that evening. We then pick up again on Sunday morning (not too early, don’t worry), leaving the afternoon for off-conference networking and leisure activities.

Invited guests Lane Greene of The Economist and Emma Seddon of Newcastle University (UK) will be joining us in Maastricht to give keynote talks. Brian Mossop of York University School of Translation (CA) will be joining us to give a workshop on revision for translators.

If you are a professional working with the English language, do join us for a packed programme with content on editing, translation, writing, education, software, freelancing, peer learning, and more.

We have now published the programme and registration is open to members and non-members alike.
