There is no one way to interpret any text. This project is intended to give some insight into a variety of ways to interpret the same text. For each of the source texts, we invited a variety of interpreters to create interpretations using this process:
- Read a 1-2 sentence description of the source text.
- Create an interpretation with this limited preparation.
- Create a second interpretation.
- Reflect on the interpretations.
We also provide a bio for each interpreter so you can see where they are on their professional journey.
