My PhD project Interpreting in the virtual meeting room combines ethnographic methods (e.g. interviews, fieldwork and observations) and Conversation Analysis to explore video mediated interpreting aspractice carried out in meetings with patients in Norwegian hospitals and as ideas held by public authorities and practitioners in the field. In this Wednesday seminar, I will discuss the divergence between video mediated interpreting as ideas and as practice based upon preliminary findings from the two methodological approaches.
