Impartiality at any Cost?
Milena Calderari-Waldron
Our society has high expectations for professional interpreters. This workshop will explore interpreters’ imperative to be impartial and neutral.

Workshop outline:

  • Axiology: impartiality, neutrality, integrity & honesty
  • Our all too human brain: heuristics, framing and cognitive dissonance reduction
  • The temptation to advocate: cultural interference and tribalism
  • I was just the interpreter: due obedience and the Nuremberg defense
  • The Good Samaritan’s duty to rescue
4:30 – 5:00 Certificates of attendance for this session will be provided to all who signed in before 1:15 p.m. and stayed until 4:30 p.m.

Free all-day parking.
