International Symposium on Interpretation and Translation Research

Date and Time:
28 March 2014 - 30 March 2014
Kellogg Conference Hotel (KCH)

We are pleased to announce that the International Symposium on Signed Language Interpretation and Translation Research has reached maximum capacity for participants. This inaugural symposium, will be held March 28-30, at Gallaudet University. The event is hosted by the Department of Interpretation, the Gallaudet University Regional Interpreter Education Center, and the Interpretation and Translation Research Center.

The symposium consists of three keynote speakers: Dr. Terry Janzen, University of Manitoba; Dr. Eileen Forestal, Union County College; and Dr. Lorraine Leeson, Trinity College, Dublin and Swarthmore College. There will be 42 research presentations and 14 poster sessions. A unique factor of the symposium is that in addition to its international participation on campus, each session will also be streamed across the globe for individuals to view at a distance.

The purpose of the symposium is to promote the exchange of evidence-based scholarship on signed language interpretation/translation and to serve as a platform for interdisciplinary research from various fields of study including linguistics, communication, sociology, psychology, anthropology, and education. The symposium is intended to serve as a forum for scholars and students of signed language interpretation, translation, and related fields to gather and share knowledge with one another.
