TIAG 8642 - Contemp Resrch on Interpreting
Contemporary research in Interpretation Studies establishes an intellectual foundation for a career in interpreting through enculturation in the community of research and professional practice. Introduces students to the interdisciplinary field of Interpretation Studies through multiple perspectives, including readings, classroom discussions, and interactive lectures by professors and guest speakers. Gives a general overview of past and present research and discusses why and how theory can be leveraged to enhance professional practice. Provides a multilingual forum for cognitive apprenticeship grounded in Schön's concept of the reflective practitioner. Creates an environment in which students can reflect on their learning experience and thus develop the skills required for consecutive and simultaneous interpretation more efficiently and effectively. Drawing on the Practicum in Interpretation and language-specific interpretation classes, students identify challenging areas in their own interpreting and conduct action research projects aimed at developing the skills and abilities to overcome these challenges. Research results are presented in class for peer discussion and feedback. Students are expected to complete an action research project that includes a ten-page paper.
