IMG_0156 Breaking Away from the Mold of Tokenism 

And Gatekeeping within Interpreter Discourse in Deaf-Hearing Teams

May 20th, 2017

Presenter: Eileen Forestal, Ph.D.,RSC

Schedule for the day:

10:00 AM to 12:00 PM Breaking Away from the Mold of Tokenism

~Our day will begin by exploring the theory of “tokenism” and how it applies within the Deaf and hearing interpreter communities as well as in organizations and agencies that serve the Deaf community. We will discuss ‘breaking the mold of tokenism’ as it relates to re-centering the Deaf community within the interpreter community and instilling a mindset of ‘interpreter-as-ally’ in interpreter practitioners.

12:00 – 1:00 PM Lunch (Brown Bag)

1:00 – 4:00 PM Gatekeeping within Interpreter Discourse in Deaf-Hearing Teams

~ The second part of the day will focus on gatekeeping theories and techniques as they apply to interpreting processes. The traditional view of gatekeeping will be discussed as well as how research has redefined gatekeeping within Deaf and hearing interpreter teams. Gatekeeping enables rapport with all parties, especially Deaf consumers. A case will be made that there is a need to move away from current teaming practices, especially within the teams, to allow for interactive dialogues. Research-based examples from videos will demonstrate how Deaf and hearing interpreter teams as well as hearing-hearing interpreter teams are gatekeepers for effective interpretation.

This training will be conducted in ASL only and is geared towards intermediate and advanced level interpreters. Space is limited to 35 students. ONLY6 SEATS REMAINING!! Pre- Registration is required.
