WASLI is only 5 months away!

February 15, 2019

Welcome to WASLI Paris to be held between 15-19 July 2019.

The conference theme is “Honouring the Past, Treasuring the Present and Shaping the Future”.  At this conference we will celebrate collaboration amongst interpreters and Deaf communities around the world.

The WASLI Board has carefully considered the keynotes to reflect the theme of the conference, with each keynote being a Deaf-hearing team in Liisa Kauppinen and Bill Moody (USA); Selman Hoti & Enver Kurtalani (Kosovo); and Marianne Rossi Stumpf and Ronice Müller de Quadros (Brazil).

The WASLI Organising Committee, led by Michelle Ashley of Australia, has secured the Université Paris-Descartes as our conference venue.  This is a centrally located venue in the heart of the Paris Latin Quarter, with plenty of affordable accommodation, entertainment and dining options surrounding it.

Information pertaining to the conference will be regularly shared via e-mail to members and on social media.  Registration is available now.
