PRA Seminar Series: : ‘Interpreting in the Healthcare Context: The interpreter as the third participant’ (open to all)

May 16 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Dr Jerome Devaux, Lecturership in French from Faculty of WELS presents: Interpreting in the Healthcare Context: The interpreter as the third participant (open to all)

This presentation will first cover the history of interpreting in the health sector. Based on the main research paradigms in Interpreting Studies and the most recent findings, the second part will examine the reasons why interpreters should no longer be considered as ideological invisible language conduits but as fully-fledged participants. The third part will focus on how technologies, such as videoconferencing systems, have impacted on the role and the work of the interpreter. This presentation will conclude by presenting some potential research avenues.
