In honor of Interpreter Appreciation Day, FRID has invited Dr. Mark Halley of University of North Florida to present a workshop regarding allyship and the interpreter role in social movement studies free to our members! 

In this workshop, Dr. Halley contextualizes the so-called ally model of interpreting. To do so, he will provide an overview of social movement studies, contentious politics, and role-space theory, applying these frameworks to signed language interpreters who work in protest settings. Specifically, he uses the 1988 Deaf President Now protest as a case study, while also making parallels to contemporary social movements. At the conclusion of the webinar, workshop participants will be able to articulate key concepts in social movement studies, apply role-space theory to analyzing the work of interpreters, critique conceptual models of interpreter role, and discuss interpreting in contentious political settings. 

In this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate key concepts in social movement studies,
  • Apply role-space theory to analyzing the work of interpreters,
  • Critique conceptual models of interpreter role, and
  • Discuss interpreting in contentious political settings
