  • Integrating Multimodality in the study of Dialogue Interpreting

    31 August 2015

    This two-day international workshop represents a very timely first step towards the advancement of multimodal approaches to the study of Dialogue Interpreting (DI). Current research on DI, which is a key practice in the present era of globalization, migration and mobility, has not fully accounted for the variety of integrated resources participants employ to co-construct meaning (verbal and embodied). The workshop therefore aims to address the urgent need to develop novel, rigorous and holistic research methods to investigate the interplay between multiple levels of interaction in DI, which is further strengthened by the emergence of new modes of interpreting, such as video-mediated interpreting. To this end, scholars from various fields of study (interpreting, multimodality, communication, sociology, theatre, ICTs, etc.) are invited to contribute to the process of consolidating this new area of enquiry.

  • Introduction to Qualitative Interviewing

    2 September 2015

    Qualitative in-depth interviews are a much used and useful research tool in academic and applied social research. This one-day course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of qualitative interviewing. The course is designed primarily for researchers with minimal or no experience of qualitative interviewing. However the course may also be useful for more experienced researchers who have had little formal training or who wish to reflect on their practice. The day includes sessions exploring the characteristics of qualitative research, how to prepare for an interview, tips on how to conduct interviews effectively and the development of discussion guides for interviews. The teaching sessions are interspersed with practical exercises exploring different types of interaction that might occur during an interview and various aspects of interviewing practice. Participants will be given the opportunity to carry out a practice interview, experience being interviewed and observe interviewing taking place. We will explore a variety of ethical and other issues as these arise in discussion.

    The speakers are very experienced social researchers who will draw on their own research as well as established practice within the social sciences.
