ASL Gumbo: Ingredients for Seasoned Interpreters Part 1 - Deaf Culture

SKU#: 42

0.3 CEUs PS

ASL Gumbo: Ingredients for Seasoned Interpreters is a new series we have begun where we revisit, explore, and/or review topics we learned about when we first came into the profession of sign language interpreting. These topics will range from Culture’s influence on communication to Ethics to Team Interpreting. New and upcoming interpreters will find the presentation of these topics of benefit, as well.

Our first installment in this series is Culture’s influence on communication. Are we really confident that culture has anything to do with interpreting? Through this presentation the statement “If you do not have an understanding of culture and its influence on communication you cannot possibly become an effective interpreter” will be explored and proven or disproven.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to identify the difference between the terms “Deaf” (capital D) and “deaf” (small d).
  2. Participants will be able to list two ways culture plays a role in communication.
  3. Participants will produce at least two reasons a knowledge of Deaf Culture is important to interpreters.
