What is the Fall Forum?

The annual GSTILE Fall Forum provides the MIIS community with a forum for
discussion of relevant issues of our time. This exciting event offers our second-year
interpretation students the unique opportunity to perform consecutive
interpretation in a professional setting; it also gives students in other academic
programs the chance to see interpreters at work and to consider how they might
work effectively with an interpreter.

Why “freedom”?

Many of us take freedom for granted as a universal right, but the struggle for
freedom has caused countless conflicts, and even war. At this year’s Fall Forum,
three panels will focus on the intersection of freedom with migration, new
technologies, and gender roles. Speakers with diverse professional and personal
backgrounds will share their views in their native languages mediated through
consecutive interpretation.
