Reading Between the Signs: Intercultural Communication for Sign Language Interpreters 2nd Edition

Buy
Ann Mindess examines a culture not widely understood - American deaf culture. Collectivist and high-context, it contrasts with mainstream individualistic, low-context American culture. Both cultures are examined and the interpreter's role and responsibilities are discussed.

This book provides us with a penetrating look at a subject that, up until its first publication in 1999, was rarely thought or written about. The community of interpreters and interpreter educators received the first edition of Reading Between the Signs with great enthusiasm and a tremendous hunger. It filled a gaping hole in the body of literature of interpretation. The original Reading Between the Signs was a groundbreaking text that provided interpreters and interpreting students with insight and greater comfort navigating the complex work we do. As we move into the new paradigm inspired by this book, this new edition will bring even greater inspiration with its updated information.
