When healthcare providers and patients do not speak the same language, medical interpreters are called in to help. In this book - the first ever ethnographic study of a bilingual hospital - Claudia Angelelli explores the role of medical interpreters, drawing on data from over 300 medical encounters and interviewing the interpreters themselves about the people for whom they interpret, their challenges, and how they characterize their role. Traditionally the interpreter has been viewed as a language conduit, with little power over the medical encounter or the relationship between patient and provider. This book presents an alternative view, considering the interpreter’s agency and contextualizing the practice within an institution that is part of a larger society. Bringing together literature from social theory, social psychology, and linguistic anthropology, this book will be welcomed by anyone who wants to discover the intricacies of medical interpreting first-hand; particularly researchers, communication specialists, policy makers, and practitioners. • The first ever ethnographic study of a bilingual hospital • Includes data from over 300 medical encounters • Includes Spanish and English translations of interviews on medical interpreting Contents 1. Questioning invisibility; 2. Communication in a medical encounter; 3. A different set of lenses; 4. California hope: a public hospital in changing times; 5. Putting it all together; 6. Finding visibility; 7. Interpreters’ voices; 8. Emerging metaphors and final words. Printed Pages: 168 with 8 tables and 8 figures.
