The upcoming new Interpreting Journal Club
The Interpreting Journal Club is to make a comeback soon. As of July 21st, 2016, a pre-discussion on the format, pace and topics is going on over a private group over Whatsapp. If interested, you are invited to join. The results of these exchanges will help define the new Interpreting Journal Club.
The past experience resulted in meetings, encounters, collaborations and friendship being nurtured offline worldwide. It is with the same spirit that we want to test-relaunch The Interpreting Journal Club sessions, but with more flexibility:
- No live session to allow a more relaxed participation and not stay awake in the middle of the night, or wake up at the wee hours to be a part of it. But live exchange is a possibility if you happen to be on-channel at the same time.
- The topic on this test session will be Remote Interpreting.
- A starting date will be announced and a session will run over several days with questions around the main topic thrown in the ring at a leisurely pace.
We are gathering background stuff to read, listen to or view, and the first test session should be launched hopefully before the end of this July month.
Your help to spread the word around, rekindle with past participants, and rousing interest of new ones will be very welcome as usual.
Cheers from Tokyo.
The good old Interpreting Journal Club, as it used to be
The Interpreting Journal Club was a public, scheduled live Twitter chat based gathering online for language interpreters and related stakeholders worldwide to discuss in chat mode topics of interests to the profession.
The Interpreting Journal Club (was) is the brainchild of Lionel Dersot, made possible by enthusiastic participants in many continents.
