International Conference On Interpretation

Inspiring Critical Thinking

Essential Questions of Past, Present, and Future
Our theme for this year’s International Conference on Interpretation focuses on the essential questions that we as interpreters face in our professional lives and how interpretation can serve to articulate issues and help bridge the increasingly divisive public discourse. Communication is a key to understanding—the interpretive communication process presents and translates information in a way that is meaningful to the audience, and this is a path to education and agreement.

What is interpretation’s role in inspiring critical thinking and meaningful conversations about the challenging issues of our times? Similarly, what evolution has the profession seen in the thinking behind, and uses of, interpretation?
