 Abstract:
 
 This groundbreaking study explores Simultaneous Conference Interpreting
 (SI) by focusing on interpreters as professionals working in socio-cultural
 contexts and on the interdependency between these contexts and actual SI
 behavior. While previous research on SI has been dominated by cognitive and
 psycholinguistic approaches, Diriker's work explores SI in relation to the
 broader and more immediate socio-cultural contexts by investigating the
 representation of the profession(al) in the meta-discourse and by exploring
 the presence of interpreters and the nature of the interpreted utterance at
 an actual conference. Making use of participant observations, interviews
 and analysis of conference transcripts, Diriker challenges some of the
 widely held assumptions about SI. She suggests that the interpreter's
 delivery represents not only the speaker but a multiplicity of
 speaker-positions, and that this multiplicity may well be a source of
 tension or vulnerability, as well as strength, for interpreters. Her
 analysis also highlights how interpreters negotiate meaning in SI, and
 underscores the need for more concerted efforts to explore SI in authentic
 contexts.
