Ethics at the intersections of Crisis Translation, Humanitarian Innovation and Information as a Humanitarian Good
The INTERACT project and the Centre for Translation and Textual Studies at DCU had the good fortune to host a seminar by Dr Matthew Hunt on 22 March 2018. Matthew Hunt is an Associate Professor at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. A faculty member in the School of Physical and Occupational Therapy, he is also a researcher at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Rehabilitation and associate member of the McGill Biomedical Ethics Unit and Institute for Health and Social Policy. He presented some thought-provoking ideas about humanitarian innovation and how it might relate to translation, in general, and translation technology specifically. The talk was attended by DCU researchers from the School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies, the School of Nursing and Human Science, the School of Computing, as well as colleagues from Deaf Studies at TCD. His visit to DCU was funded through the James M Flaherty Research Scholarship from the Ireland Canada University Foundation.
