Ideology and Conference Interpreting: A Case Study of the Summer Davos Forum in China


Add your own review!

Overview

Gao uses the case of conference interpreting at the Summer Davos Forum in China to systematically reveal the ways in which ideology and linguistic ‘re-engineering’ can lead to discourse reconstruction. Translation and interpreting can never be wholly neutral practices in ‘multi-voiced’ transnational communication. Gao employs an innovative methodological synthesis to examine in depth a range of elements surrounding interpreters’ ideological positioning. These include analysing the appraisal patterns of the source and target texts, identifying ‘us’-and-‘them’ discourse structures, investigating interpreters’ cognitions, and examining the crossmodal means by which interpreters render paralanguage. Collectively, they bridge the gap between socio-political and ideological concerns on the one hand, and practical questions of discourse reconstruction in cross-language/ cultural events on the other, offering a panoramic perspective. An invaluable read for scholars in translation and interpreting studies, particularly those with an interest in political discourse or the international relations context.
