In today's multilingual, multicultural society, the need for interpreters has never been greater. This book introduces students, researchers and practitioners to the fast-developing discipline of Interpreting Studies.
Written by a leading researcher in the field, "Introducing Interpreting Studies" guides the reader through international conference, court and hospital interpreting, in both signed and spoken modalities. The book begins by exploring the ways in which the field evolved, looking at historical developments, concepts, influential models and methodological approaches. It then moves on to consider the main areas of research in the field, before reviewing the major trends of Interpreting Studies, reflecting on how the subject will develop in the future and offering direction to those undertaking research of their own.
Featuring chapter summaries, guides to the main points covered in the book and suggestions for further reading, this practical and user-friendly textbook is the definitive map of this important and growing field. The book can be used on its own, or to accompany "The Interpreting Studies Reader" (Routledge, 2002).
