This seminar - to be led by Franz Pöchhacker - will provide teachers of conference interpreting with a state-of-the-art overview of research on conference interpreting and will cover both general and specific topics of interest, also in relation to professional and training issues. Two consecutive courses will be held to allow more trainers to attend.
The seminars will comprise three main parts:
Trainer: Franz Pöchhacker is Associate Professor of Interpreting Studies at the University of Vienna. He has worked as a conference and media interpreter and published articles and monographs on various domains of interpreting, including the textbook Introducing Interpreting Studies (Routledge, 2004). He is co-editor, with Minhua Liu, of Interpreting: International Journal of Research and Practice in Interpreting, and had edited the Routledge Encyclopedia of Interpreting Studies (Routledge, 2015).
Participants should be practising conference interpreters and trainers of conference interpreters.
