Organizing Committee

The Laboratory of Narrative Research and the Laboratory of Translation, Interpreting and Communication, with the support of AIIC Greece-Cyprus will organize an annual symposium in 2018 which will focus on the process of narrativising migrant displacement. In recent years an unprecedented wave of immigrants has been flooding the countries of southern Europe. The problem of communicating their narratives to different state bodies (law enforcement and asylum authorities, courts, schools) has been a major issue for both the immigrants and the host countries. Community interpreting is the only channel through which these people can pass their stories to the host community, at moments that can prove catalytic for their lives and the lives of their families. This symposium intends to explore this channel of communication from different perspectives. In different "rites of passages" - police interrogations, asylum hearings, court proceedings - interpreting gives these people a "right of passage" that will allow them to continue their lives.
