Jerome Devaux

After graduating with an MA in Translation and Interpreting, Jérôme worked for several years as a freelance translator and conference/public service interpreter. He now works at the University of Salford (UK) where he is a senior tutor in French and Translation and Interpreting Studies, and a PhD candidate. His research interests lie within the field of public service interpreting, and more particularly in the use of new technologies in interpreter-mediated court hearings. His doctoral thesis examines, through the prisms of Role-Space and Actor-Network Theory, the court interpreters’ perceptions of their role(s) when they interpret via videoconference systems in England and Wales.
