Double Minorities: Interpreting for Minorities within the Deaf Minority (.3/3 CEU/CEH-Professional Studies)
Marcela S. Lopez, Karen Rama & Alysia McEvoy
Moderator: Amber Sidwell
Being Deaf or Hard of Hearing is one layer of a person’s identity. This workshop will focus on double minorities- individuals who have more than one cultural and/or linguistic identity and how we can be more sensitive to their needs as interpreters. We will also discuss some of the challenges these individuals face as they interact with the larger Deaf minority and the hearing majority. Cultural and linguistic samples include the Latino/Hispanic community, the Polynesian Community and the LGBT community. This session will include a Q&A panel.
This workshop will be presented in ASL.
