In the article I talk about (signed language) interpreting as a goal-oriented process, presenting the most important findings of my PhD research (KU Leuven, Belgium) and insights from my follow-up postdoctoral study (University of Warwick, UK).

WASLI 2021 conference keynote

On July 10th I delivered the opening keynote at the online conference organised by the World Association of Sign Language Interpreters. The theme of the conference was What have we learnt from 2020-2021.

You can re-watch (part) of the keynote entitled Retrospection, reflection, and strategies. Pausing in order to move the signed language interpreting profession forward (! the presentation was not recorded from the start unfortunately).
The slides of the presentation can be found and downloaded here.

I also had the honour to share some closing remarks. The WASLI’s August Newsletter reports on the conference and includes some participants’ impressions.
