Language is an immense barrier that culturally and linguistically diverse communities face when accessing domestic violence support services.
RMIT is proud to host this free lecture with interpreter, translator and gender violence expert Professor Maribel del Pozo Triviño from the University of Vigo in Spain.
Language can be an immense barrier that culturally and linguistically diverse communities face when accessing domestic violence support services. Interpreters break down this barrier, helping to create better access to services and provide assistance with navigating social, health and legal systems.
Professor Maribel del Pozo Triviño will explore issues around the need for effective and quality language services in order to support those escaping violence.
You will also have the opportunity to hear from RMIT PhD candidate Ms Olga Gracia-Caro, who is the first person in Australia to undertake research into interpreting in domestic violence settings.
The event will begin with morning tea to celebrate the 40th anniversary of RMIT’s translating and interpreting programs.
We look forward to sharing this special occasion with you.
