The 2015 Summer Interpreting and Translation Research Institute has now come to a close. Twenty-one participants from across the globe attended the week-long event that was offered to advance training and to stimulate high-level discussion in Interpreting and Translation Studies. The Institute was a collaborative venture of the Department of Interpretation at Gallaudet University and the Graduate Studies Program in Interpreting and Translation at the University of Maryland.
The theme of the 2015 Institute - "One Question, Multiple Approaches" - was explored through instruction and dialogue about various qualitative and quantitative research methods traditionally used to explore research questions in interpreting and translation.
