This is an interdisciplinary course that focuses on language and communication in highly sensitive contexts of investigative interviews and translation in criminal and civil justice; it brings cutting-edge interdisciplinary research to the fore and contextualises it in the latest theoretical and applied background of linguistics, psychology and the law; the focus is on what it is easy or hard to express in spoken and written communication in different languages and the challenges this presents for translation.
