Integrating Multimodality in the study of Dialogue Interpreting
31 August 2015 - 1 September 2015
This two-day international workshop represents a very timely first step towards the advancement of multimodal approaches to the study of Dialogue Interpreting (DI). Current research on DI, which is a key practice in the present era of globalization, migration and mobility, has not fully accounted for the variety of integrated resources participants employ to co-construct meaning (verbal and embodied). The workshop therefore aims to address the urgent need to develop novel, rigorous and holistic research methods to investigate the interplay between multiple levels of interaction in DI, which is further strengthened by the emergence of new modes of interpreting, such as video-mediated interpreting. To this end, scholars from various fields of study (interpreting, multimodality, communication, sociology, theatre, ICTs, etc.) are invited to contribute to the process of consolidating this new area of enquiry.
