The Mediterranean Editors and Translators Meeting 2018, or METM18 for short, took place in early October. The conference theme was “Giving credit where credit’s due: recognition for authors, translators and editors”. 

 I was invited to speak on the topic of  “When your name’s on it: gaining public acknowledgement and marking your digital territory in non-academic contexts“, I understand, because every blog post I write carries the © copyright symbol,

MET member Lisa Agostini kindly volunteered to interview several presenters at METM18. Together with her recording artist partner, Julian Mayers, she produced a podcast containing snippets from my presentation and a short interview (11:55). MET members can sign into The Hive on the MET website to listen to the other podcast interviews.

If you’re not yet a MET member, you might want to consider becoming one, if only for the wealth of resources made available on The Hive and the MET website itself.
