Can’t find time in your busy schedule to attend the Institute’s Found in Translation series? The Monterey Institute is now posting videos of recorded events on the Found in Translation website, free of charge for everyone to watch.
This semester we’ve already had Professor Julie Johnson speak on mental conditioning for interpreters, and Kent Johansson speak about translating in the Eurpoean parliament. Both talks are up on the Found in Translation website now.
On November 1, Professor Aida Martinez-Gomez will be giving a presentation entitled “Community interpreting for less visible communities: An international overview of interpreting in prison settings” at 12:15PM in Irvine Auditorium. We look forward to seeing you all there. If not, be sure to catch the recording online.
Be sure to look at Anthony Pym’s interview with Professor Kayoko Takeda, where she discusses her role at MIIS as a professor in the Translation and Interpretation program, her current research interests, and how she got to where she is today.
She also discusses her new book, Interpreting the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal, which looks at the 3-tiered interpreting arrangement at the Tokyo War Crimes trial and included Japanese diplomats, Japanese-Americans, and U.S. military officials as interpreters. Lastly, Professor Kayoko Takeda gives a brief look at what’s happening in Japan today with translation, and gives a few words about translation research topics she’s still curious about.
