Research on Community Interpreting as a Resourcefor Research on Simultaneous Interpreting - Auria Rodríguez Gómez 193
Auria Rodríguez Gómez, Universidade de Santiago de Compostela Research on Community Interpreting as a Resource for Research on Simultaneous Interpreting In the 80s, Interpreting Studies’ interests became broader, extend- ing beyond psycho-linguistic approaches to conference interpreting (Pöchhacker, 2004, 2006, 2009). This more social approach made re- searchers’ interests shift to community interpreting, which has itself turned out to be an ideal object of study for incorporating approach- es originating in fields such as Discourse Analysis or Conversation Analysis, given its conversational implications relating to turn-tak- ing, power relations, etc. Conference interpreting and community interpreting are dif- ferent, but they have many aspects in common, so research into ei- ther type of interpreting results in an enhanced understanding of the other, thus contributing to interdisciplinarity. In our case, on the basis of a study of simultaneous interpreting in European Parlia- ment debates, we observed that resources and reflections, stemming from Discourse Analysis and Conversation Analysis when applied to community interpreting, may be extremely helpful when carrying out research on simultaneous interpreting, even if the latter is not so clearly linked to these disciplines. More specifically, community interpreting research may yield results which contribute to broaden- ing our understanding of conference interpreting, thus undermining some ideas that still prevail in the latter. In the following sections the main features and conclusions of our study will be tackled, as well as the ideas we borrowed from other studies focusing on community interpreting. 194 Rodríguez Gómez 1.
