|Toward a Deaf Translation Norm|
The Sixth Volume in the Studies in Interpretation Series
From The Midwest Book Review’s library newsletter Wisconsin Bookwatch
The sixth volume in the outstanding Studies in Interpretation series from Gallaudet University Press, Toward a Deaf Translation Norm by Christopher Stone (Researcher, the Deafness, Cognition, and Language Research Centre, University College London, London, England) is a 224-page study of the emergence of the profession of Deaf translators and interpreters which has arisen due to the increasing inclusion of the hearing impaired in business, education, popular culture, government, and other aspects of contemporary society. Drawing upon his years of experience and expertise, Stone notes the increasing numbers of translators and interpreters working with and for the deaf and provides perspective on the future evolution of these services in an age of the internet and mass communications. Of special note is the concluding chapter on deaf translation norms. Enhanced with an appendix, references, and an index, Toward a Deaf Translation Norm is a seminal contribution for personal, professional, and academic library reference collections and supplemental reading lists.
Christopher Stone is an associate professor in the Department of Interpretation at Gallaudet University.
