About this Episode
While the Troublesome Terps have covered gender in interpreting before already (see here or here), it is a topic that will never not be relevant. For this reason, Sarah Hickey - conference interpreter and professional researcher at Nimdzi Insights - is joining us this episode to discuss the ‘feminisation’ of conference interpreting from female interpreters' perspectives.
An interesting, well researched and entertaining look into the gender dynamics of the profession!
