“Representation Matters: Addressing Social Injustice” presented by Erica West Oyedele, MA, NIC and Leang Ngov
Participants will have an opportunity to unpack concepts surrounding social justice, intersectionality, and power & privilege. This presentation takes an intersectional look at the field of interpreting and incorporates discussions surrounding race, gender, sex, and class among others while making ties to the impacts of language deprivation on Deaf people. Interpreters will consider the factors that influence how one acquires linguistic and cultural competence and correlations between an interpreter’s cultural and linguistic fluency and the language deprivation of Deaf people will be made.
