  1. Thank you so much, Marcia. I should clarify that this is a full-time, in-person, synchronous program and (except in the current bizarro pandemic conditions, which we hope will be over by next fall) participants are expected to reside in Boston and attend classes, workshops, and Translation Seminar lectures in person.
