Interpreting for Deaf Refugees: Role-Space


Light-bulb moments for interpreters stuck in the double-binds of established role-models abound in Robert G. Lee andPeter Llewellyn-Jones concept of Role-space. Ege and I find their pioneering model particularly enlightening for settings involving Deaf migrants or refugees. Here, we can take their English/ASL webinar for an introduction into the topic, or read their scholarly article Getting to the Core of Role: Defining Interpreters’ Role-Space“. Of course, its best to read the entire book available on Amazon: Redefining the Role of the Community Interpreter: The Concept of Role-space, Carlton-le-Moorland: SLI Press, 2014.
