JUSTISIGNS WORKSHOP: POLICE INTERPRETING WITHIN THE DEAF COMMUNITY
The Centre for Deaf Studies at Trinity College Dublin and Interesource Group
(Ireland) Limited with Deaf Community Centre in Limerick are delighted to
invite you to the next series of JUSTISIGNS training “Police Interpreting
within the Deaf Community” by Prof. Lorraine Lesson, Prof. Terry Janzen and
Prof. Barbara Shaffer. This event is under the auspices of the JUSTISIGNS
Project, funded by the European Commission.
This workshop focuses a key issue in discourse: contextualisation.
Contextualization is a feature of discourse where the speaker or signer
includes information to assist the addressee in understanding assertions
made in the discourse.
In this seminar, we examine the idea of “double contextualization” in the
interpreting process, and work to better understand how the choices
interpreters make influence the texts they produce and impact the developing
intersubjective relationships among the discourse participants they are
The workshop will be run on two occasions:
Monday 27th July at the Centre for Deaf Studies (CDS) 1st Floor, Phoenix
House, 6-9 South Leinster Street, Trinity College, Dublin 2, from 10am to
Wednesday 29th July at the Deaf Community Centre (DCC) in 96 O’Connell
Street, Limerick, from 10 am to 4.30 pm.
An Irish Sign Language interpreter will be provided for both workshops.
This event is free of charge but registration is required as places are
limited. To register please email: [email protected].
