Join us on Thursday, February 1st from 7:30 - 9:30pm (ET) for our CEC Webinar “Black ASL: What does it mean for interpretation?”

This workshop will review the research on the history and structure of Black ASL and discuss where an awareness of language varieties and dialects fits into the interpretation process. This workshop fits squarely into the area of language and cultural development and into the exploration and expansion of language and cultural repertoires. Following the review of the research and the viewing of the documentary on Black ASL - Signing Black in America - the workshop participants will be divided into groups and asked to discuss questions concerning the relationship between language varieties and interpreting. The groups will then be brought back together to share their findings and participate in a general discussion and Q & A. The workshop will last ninety minutes. The questions and the discussion will deal with what it means for interpreters to use Black ASL and how interpreters know when to use African American English. With Black ASL as the foundation and the starting point, perspectives on the varieties of other languages, both spoken and signed, such as Spanish and French will be welcome. The workshop will be interactive and will engage and elevate the discourse around interpreting for Black Deaf consumers and consumers whose repertoires include varieties of Spanish, French, and other languages. In addition to working interpreters and students of interpreters, it will benefit teachers, counselors, and professionals in the field of interpreting.
