The Study of Child Language Brokering: Past, Current and Emerging Research
Antonini, Rachele
Online Submission, mediAzioni v10 2010
This special issue of "mediAzioni," the online journal of the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies on Translation, Languages and Culture (SITLeC) of the University of Bologna at Forli, derives from the "Study Day on Child Language Brokering" held in Forli in 2008. The Study Day began with a morning session during which established scholars in the field of child language brokering (henceforth CLB) from different countries were invited to talk about their research and studies and share the experience and expertise they have gained within different disciplines and with a variety of methodological approaches. The morning session was then followed by a round table in the afternoon entitled "Child Language Brokering: The point of view of institutions and former child brokers" aimed at presenting the point of view of the representatives of various public institutions as well as former language brokers who had acted as interpreters for their families in their young age. The issues described and discussed by the contributors and participants to both the morning and afternoon sessions where so varied and relevant to the topic of child language brokering that we decided to put together a volume that would provide an overview of how research on interpreting and translation activities performed by children and adolescents began, and of the development of current and future research in this field of study. For this reason, this volume includes not only contributions by the participants to the Study Day but also from other distinguished and established scholars in this field of research, as well as articles by new and emerging researchers.
