“ASL Gumbo: Ingredients for Seasoned Interpreters” Workshop 0.3 PS RID CEU’s (Online Webcast)
February 9, 2013 2 Comments
Part 1 – “Culture”
“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.
