MADRID, Spain – The American University of Armenia (AUA)’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences is proud to share that on June 11-13, 2014, Rafik Santrosyan, lecturer of consecutive and simultaneous interpretation in AUA’s Certificate in Translation program, presented a paper at the Twelfth International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities in Madrid, Spain.
Santrosyan’s paper, entitled On Linguistic Reconstruction of a Criminal Case: Macro- and Micro-Causation, touched upon ways of re(de)constructing crime in forensic discourse through analyzing different verbs denoting deprivation of life in English and Armenian. It particularly sought to illustrate the link between the deep semantics of verbs of killing and their role in determining public approaches to the law.
