October meeting - Mind the Gap: Teaching Culturally Situated Interpreting

  • 22 Oct 2016
  • 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Boston University CELOP

Professor Anna Zielinska-Elliott teaches Japanese language and literature as well as translation and interpreting at Boston University. In addition, she has published many translations of Japanese literature, and she works as an interpreter. Her talk will focus on cultural awareness in interpreting, seen from the perspective of both her role as a teacher and her experience as a practitioner. In her words:


"While effectively improving students' language proficiency, interpreting practice encourages students to think creatively between languages as they must make quick judgments as to what to translate, what to leave out, and whether some cultural repositioning of information is necessary."
