The settlement of Jamestown by the English in the early 17th century and the role of interpreters, whose stories give us a sense of the difficult position of intermediaries as well as a broader picture of what life was like for the settlers.
The Conference Interpreting team at the University of Westminster will be holding a short (six-day) course for interpreters with English B in August 2010. We are flexible as to dates (the weeks of August 2nd or 9th) and numbers (up to 18) and would like to hear from colleagues who would be interested in attending. Venue: University of Westminster, United Kingdom Date: August 2010
On June 30th and July 1st of this year the University of Westminster hosted a conference: the Future of Conference Interpreting: Training, Technology and Research. It was an event that took careful planning and involved lots of people and institutions, including an organising committee [i], the University's Marketing, Events and Press Officers as well as our technician, Barry Sims, so I am pleased to report that it was an unqualified success.
