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