“ENPSIT is delighted to announce that the international InDialog Conference series will be continuing under its auspices from 2019. InDialog 3 will be held in Antwerp on 21-22 November 2019 and hosted jointly by the University of Antwerp and KU Leuven Antwerp campus.
Theme: Interpreter Practice, Research and Training: the Impact of Context
Continuing the initiative of the past two conferences in the series, InDialog 3 will deal with dialogue interpreting in its many forms. The conference focuses on the impact of different contexts on the way dialogue interpreting unfolds in practice and how this phenomenon is being researched and addressed in (higher) education and training.
Context is to be understood in a broad sense. Not only does it refer to those dialogue interpreting contexts that may be perceived as the usual contexts, such as institutional health care, legal interpreting and the diverse contexts of public service interpreting more generally. ENPSIT particularly wishes to invite contributions examining dialogue interpreting in other contexts such as conflict situations, refugee camps, war zones and various other ad hoc interpreting settings. A further aspect will be the potential impact of unusual circumstances on so-called normal working settings and conditions in today’s globalized society. Interpreters are required to deal with the unexpected and to cope with a range of challenges as a matter of course. InDialog 3 will provide a forum to examine how we are dealing with these challenges as practitioners, researchers and trainers. ”
