CROSS-CURRENTS: INDIGENOUS LANGUAGE INTERPRETING IN AUSTRALIA’S JUSTICE SYSTEM

thesis
posted on 20.10.2021, 03:53 by DIMA RUSHO
This thesis takes a holistic perspective on Indigenous language interpreting in the justice system by situating it in the linguistic, racio-political, and sociocultural context in which it occurs. Interpreting is also examined from an epistemological standpoint in order to uncover the hidden ways by which language, knowledge, and interpreting can intersect. The thesis focuses particularly on Kriol interpreting in the Katherine region and aims to elevate the voices of Indigenous language interpreters. Data is drawn from court observations, field notes, and semi-structured interviews with interpreters and legal professionals.
