Abstract:
In a society increasingly polarised by processes of globalisation, and given the shift from national to transnational spheres of action in resisting these processes, there is a pressing need to reflect on the socio-political profile of translators and interpreters, not only in the labour market of the public and private sectors, but also in civil society. This case-study of activist interpreting ultimately invites practitioners, professionals and scholars to critically reflect on the narratives that circulate in the field in order to bring about greater engagement with the role played by translation and interpreting in an increasingly competitive, polarised and violent society.
