EUMASLI III - presentation of MA research

  • Deaf House 17 Brohusgade 2200 Copenhagen Denmark (map)

The current cohort of the European Master in Sign Language Interpreting consists of 21 interpreters from 12 countries. From 3 - 5 September 2019 they will present the results of their MA research.

Wide ranging topics will include discussion of professional language use, perceptions of interpreting by deaf laypersons and deaf professionals, and the language background of multilingual interpreters. Interpreting in academic settings, in education, for deaf-blind people, and in multiparty-interaction will be considered, as well as issues such as the influence of gender on the profession, the translation of multimodal text, omissions by deaf interpreters, the uses of signing avatars, interpreting songs, industrial relations between interpreters and deaf clients, team interpreting, supervision, confidentiality, reasoning skills, and the influence of interpreter accent on the hearing person’s perception of deaf people. All presentations will be accessible through English and International Sign.

The three-day event will take place from Tuesday, September 3, 2019 (afternoon), to Thursday, September 5, 2019, in the Deaf House, 17 Brohusgade, 2200 Copenhagen, Denmark. Come and join the presentations! Attendance is free, but please do register.
