Rachel Mapson webinar – Open to ASLI members only

28th June 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Familiarity breeds content! 

How interpreter continuity promotes rapport between clients

This webinar repeats a presentation given at the ASLI conference in Newcastle last year.  It explores two sets of data, generated during doctoral research, to look at the perceptions of Deaf clients and interpreters around the value of interpreter continuity.  The data illustrate how the prior knowledge of clients’ patterns of relating and the interactional context, afforded by latent networks, may positively influence both source and target language production, facilitating interpretation that more accurately reflects clients’ intentions and promotes rapport between them.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the webinar participants will be able to:

  • Relate the concept of ‘latent networks’ to interpreting practice.
  • Describe ways in which BSL might be altered when a Deaf client is unfamiliar with an interpreter.
  • Recognise some of the challenges for interpreters when working with unfamiliar clients.
  • Recognise the benefits of continuity of interpreter provision.
