The Eighth Volume in the Studies in Interpretation Series
From Reference & Research Book News
A nationally certified sign language interpreter, Brunson (sociology, Gallaudet U.) explores the ongoing issue of the professionalization of sign language interpretation, using the emerging medium of video relay service as a case study. He ponders what it means to be a professional, the appropriate relationship between professionals and consumers, and how that relationship is impacted by the growing integration of electronic technology into daily life. Among his topics are the architecture of access, textualizing the on-call and off-call interpreter, and connecting the dots and pointing in new directions. (Annotation ©2011 Book News Inc.
