Almost 20 years ago David Uzzell called for interpreters to recognise the key role of theory in underpinning practice, and that the development of research that informs theory was critical to the development of interpretation as a whole. Since then interpretation has developed within higher education, but today it is still predominantly an element of other degrees, rather than a subject in its own right. What does this say about the development of interpretation, both as an academic discipline and in wider practice? How do we ‘cross the border’ to create stronger connections between higher education and interpretation practice to develop the discipline, increasing awareness of its roles and values, for the benefit of all?
