"Young interpreters: language intermediation as a diversity inclusion tool"
Seminar organised by the MIRAS research group marking the end of two research project conducted during the past few years: the EYLBID strategic association, co-funded by the European Union's Erasmus+ Programme, and the ILM project, funded by the Spanish Ministry for Science, Innovation and Universities.
In addition to the conference that will be offered by Professor Marjorie Orellana, from the UCLA School of Education and Information Studies, the seminar will include several communications in which the results of the projects and materials created will be presented.
