This is our monthly reading group where a journal article or book chapter related to the world of interpreting – both spoken language and signed language – will be selected and read. The reading group will be giving us the opportunity to discover new research which will inform our practice and to discuss topics in a safe and supportive environment.

The format for the event will be an introduction to the paper followed by breakout rooms for small groups to discuss the paper – We can discuss such things as what did you learn? What did you like? What did you not like? What did you not understand? How might this inform your practice? What other CPD might you look to undertake because of reading the paper?

Key dates:

Monday 4th September – Registration and voting opens. You will need to supply your name and an email address upon registration.

Thursday 14th September – voting closes at 23:59.

Friday 15th September – The chosen paper will be uploaded here on the event page to download.

Friday 22nd September – Registration closes. So still time to register, read the paper and join us!

Monday 25th September, 7:00pm – 8:00pm – Online meeting to discuss the paper.

(Zoom will open at 6:45 for a mini social chinwag!)

If you are registering after voting has closed, you will not have a say in which paper will be selected and the winning paper will be listed below. This is to ensure we have ample time to read the paper before the event. (Top tip – register early next month!). Please do not worry if your preferred paper is not chosen this time as papers receiving a significant number of votes can be added to another month’s list.

  1. Hearing people perceiving deaf people through sign language interpreters at work: On the loss of self through interpreted communication (Young, Oram and Napier, 2019) Hearing people perceiving deaf people through sign language interpreters at work on the loss of self through interpreted communication
