My PhD is part of INTERPRETING, a research project on interpreter-mediated interactions in the Danish health and legal sectors (funded by Independent Research Fund Denmark). Together with Martha Sif Karrebæk and Marta Kirilova, I investigate the interactional work citizens, institutional representatives and interpreters engage in when establishing understanding in court and in therapy sessions.
So far, I have focused on identification sequences in Danish Constitutional Hearings using Conversation analysis. In the identification sequences, the accused is identified before the court, and this oftentimes leads to misunderstandings between the participants.
I hand in my PhD dissertation January 31st 2022.
