University Library (April 26, 2023)

SEMINAR SERIES : Book Culture Club Events

MAJOR SPEAKER : Rosendo, Lucia Ruiz, Todorova, Marija, Baigorri-Jalón, Jesús, Pan, Janice
LENGTH : 98 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : The role of interpreters in conflict situations is of increasing importance in the world today. There are ethical, cultural, and professional issues that have yet to be explored, and there is a need for specialised training that addresses the specific contexts in which interpreters perform their duties, considering the situated nature of interpreting in these contexts.

This talk will present interpreter training needs and provisions in different contexts of conflict and post-conflict settings, from military operations and international tribunals to asylum-seeking and refugee, humanitarian, and human rights missions. We will touch upon important themes for interpreters in conflict and post-conflict situations, include risk management and communication, ethics and professional demeanour, language technology and its use, intercultural mediation, training in specific contexts, such as conflict resolution and negotiation, and working with trauma.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
