Language and identity are intricately linked.
Language and identity are intricately linked. Interpreters play a critical role in facilitating communication between a diverse population of individuals with varying linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
This workshop aims to delve into the fascinating intersection of interpreting and identity, acknowledging the profound impact it has on the lives of interpreters and those they serve.
