I am Amanda M. David, graduate student in the Master of Art in Interpreting Studies and Communication Equity (MAISCE) program at St. Catherine University. Under the guidance of Dr. Erica Alley and Dr. Jeremy Brunson, I am exploring characterizations of conference interpreting by sign language interpreters. I am writing today to request your participation in a brief questionnaire about your experience working in conference settings.
The questionnaire will take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete. Your responses will be anonymous and cannot be traced back to you. The Institutional Review Board (IRB) at St. Catherine University has approved the study (Protocol #936). If you have any questions or comments about this study, I would be happy to talk with you. You can reach me at email@example.com. You may also contact the St. Catherine University Institutional Review Board (IRB) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will collect responses until December 17, 2017. After that date, the questionnaire will be closed. Results will be disseminated through publications in professional journals and presentations given at conferences.
If you are at least 18 years of age and agree to participate, simply click on this to begin the survey: Conference Interpreting Survey
Thank you in advance for your support and participation!
