  • Interpreting with the Complexity of the Legal System: What Can We Do?

    Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 03/25/2020 at 7:00 PM (EDT)

    The webinar explores the legal challenges faced by Deaf and hard of hearing individuals in terms of their inability to understand legal terminology in both written text and ASL interpretations. Signs and concepts for legal terms, including the Miranda warning (also known as the Miranda Rights), can be translated in various ways by sign language interpreters and certified Deaf interpreters but different translated versions may not protect Deaf and hard of hearing individuals from self-incrimination or their constitutional rights. This session will also present a few examples of cases that were a result of erroneous translations, misinterpretations and miscommunication due to, among other factors, the lack of standardized interpretations for legal terminology. With the complexity of the legal system, topics include the interpreter’s role, responsibilities and accountability for Deaf persons in disadvantaged situations in police custody, police interview and during custodial interrogation, potential subpoenas or challenged in court for accuracy of interpretations, and best practices for providing ASL interpretation in legal settings will be discussed.

  • The 50 Year Gap: Racial Disparities in Interpreting Programs and the Pathway Forward

    Product not yet rated Contains 6 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 02/20/2020 at 7:00 PM (EST)

    One avenue in which aspiring interpreters take towards acquiring ASL and English proficiency is attending an Interpreter Training Program (ITP). A student's overall perspective of their ITP experience is determined by the nature of their exchanges with faculty and peers, and their academic interactions within the classroom. This workshop discusses recent data on racial disparities in ITP faculty, student body and classroom materials. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss ways in which their individual and collective power can create lasting impact on the push toward racial and cultural inclusion in interpreter education.
