Resource of the Week:

How Interpreters Self-Regulate
 
This week’s resource is a brand-new PhD thesis by a veteran college instructor, Rachel Herring. Of note: her dissertation director is the world-renowned researcher on interpreting: Barbara Moser-Mercer of the University of Geneva.
 
Herring’s topic is dialogue interpreting (often, though not always, a synonym for community interpreting). The thesis explores the many ways that interpreters monitor their own emotions, behavior and cognition while trying to enhance their performance.
 
The dissertation title is captivating: I Could Only Think about What I Was Doing, and That Was a Lot to Think About: Online Self-Regulation in Dialogue Interpreting.   
 
Warmest congratulations to Rachel Herring!
