    LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED ON SATURDAY, DURING THE VRID ANNUAL BUSINESS MEETING

    These workshops are a review and exploration of comparative linguistics of ASL and English in a discussion format. We work in and between both languages every day. This is your chance to take a step back and ask the linguistics questions you've always wondered about. Our guiding framework will be the relationship between form and meaning at all levels (individual words, grammatical structures, discourse features) and how those relationships parallel or diverge when comparing ASL and English. In the Friday night session, we’ll take a huge step back, and consider how communication works, where meaning comes from, and what it means to express something in one language versus another. On Saturday, we’ll put that new perspective into practice, discussing specific linguistic issues in the mentoring environment. For each linguistic feature we discuss, we will analyze its impact on meaning in ASL, its impact on meaning in English, and the potential impacts during translation/interpretation. In pairs and small groups, we will engage in activities to practice direct application of linguistic approaches, including identifying and producing various grammatical structures, depiction, constructed action/constructed dialogue, and other discourse features. Together we will consider how current research in American Sign Language linguistics directly applies to our daily work in the field of ASL/English interpreting.This workshop will be conducted in ASL with no spoken English interpretation.

    ABOUT THE PRESENTER:

    If you ask Miako (Villanueva) Rankin where she's from, you're likely to get a more complicated explanation than you expected. Although she has now lived in the DC metro area longer than anywhere else in her life, early years in Hawai'i, high school in small-town Arkansas, and young adulthood in Colorado all played formative roles in shaping who she is today. Miako was first introduced to the Deaf Community and ASL in Colorado Springs. Always fascinated by questions about how people understand each other (as evidenced by her Psychology major and German minor at Colorado College), she was blessed with a CHAMP Deaf teacher for her first ASL class (shout out to Jeannete Scheppach!). The desire to immerse herself in Deaf culture led to volunteer work and four years as a dorm supervisory at the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind (Go, Bulldogs!) as well as interpreter training at Pikes Peak Community College. Her insatiable curiosity and love of language and culture wouldn't allow her to stop there, however. In 2002 she followed her quest for more and deeper learning at Gallaudet University, where she pursued graduate studies in Linguistics, bleeding Buff and Blue as a proud Bison alum (MA 2004, PhD 2010). Miako is honored to now continue her learning as a full-time faculty member in the Department of Linguistics at Gallaudet. She specializes in Applied Linguistics and engaged research - incorporating the knowledge, approaches, and understandings gleaned from linguistic research of ASL directly into language teaching and interpretation. Miako also maintains a thriving interpreting practice, working primarily as an independent contractor and specializing in advanced educational, performing arts, government, religious, and business settings. She particularly enjoys the overlap of linguistics and interpreting, and will take full advantage of any opportunity to discuss language and nerd out about the ever-changing dynamics that create the awesome challenge  that is interpreting. Consider yourself warned :D 

    Target Audience:  experienced professional interpreters, recent ITP graduates, working interpreters, interpreter educators/mentors, interpreting consumers, and other stakeholders — anyone who wants to think about language and interpretation and how this whole thing works!

    CEUs:  VRID is an approved RID CMP Sponsor for Continuing Education Activities.  This program is offered for 0.8 possible CEUs in the content area of professional studies.

    Interpreting Jury Instructions, Plea Forms & Protection from Abuse Hearings: OH MY! 
    An Intensive American Sign Language Legal Interpreting Seminar

    Date: Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25, 2017 

    Time: 8:30 am to 4:00 pm 

    Location: Juanita Kidd Stout Center for Criminal Justice

    ABOUT THE SEMINAR: 

    This is a two-day ASL advanced seminar designed to meet the needs of the seasoned court interpreter who has completed basic court interpreter training and 

    who seeks more advanced training to sharpen skills and to gain a more thorough understanding of the realm of legal interpreting. 

    Jury instructions, change of plea hearings and Protection from Abuse hearings are challenging proceedings. Interpretation of these texts requires time and practice. Interpreters normally are given little time to review such texts and are expected to interpret these proceedings and forms on the spot. Research shows that jury instructions are dense texts and that interpreters can benefit from both text analysis and actual simultaneous interpreting practice. Ninety percent of criminal cases end in a change of plea to guilty, which is read into the record and documented by a text in which the defendant waives important constitutional rights knowingly and voluntarily. Domestic violence is a social problem that affects all sectors of society. When deaf people are involved, legal interpreters are requested to interpret and assist the Court in these high risk, emotionally charged interactions. Many times applications for protection from abuse are filed with little notice and implicate the need for emergency interpreting. This seminar will address the process and procedures promulgated by the courts, as well as discuss the ethical and interpreting demands faced in these challenging matters. 

    CEUs

    RID Certification Maintenance Program CEUs are pending for on-site activities. VRID is sponsoring the CEUs. Upon registration, participants will be emailed a list of vocabulary and instructions. Participants are expected to complete the definitions and bring to class. CEUs will not be given for completing this pre-seminar requirement. A total of 1.2 CEUs will be awarded for successful completion of the entire seminar. CEUs will not be awarded for partial attendance. Certified interpreters registered with the Administrative Office of the Pennsylvania Court Interpreter Certification Program can receive CEUs towards the renewal of their certification status by attending this seminar. Interpreters must request pre-approval from the PAICP using the form on their website.

    RID 2017 LEAD Together Conference

    Leadership, Engagement And Development …Together!
    A Working Conference of Change Agents

    PURPOSE: The purpose of the Lead Together conference is to create a shared opportunity for purpose-driven leaders and practitioners within the RID and Deaf and Interpreter Communities to come together to advance the mission of RID—either through collaboration on strategic planning for the association or through concentrated skills development activities designed to improve interpreting practice. There will be two tracks offered—one is a Leadership track and one an ASL Interpreting Skills Development track.

    VISION: The RID Board of Directors vision for the 2017 Lead Together conference is to purposefully engage RID members and community stakeholders in an inclusive environment where respect, civility, and results-driven collaboration are modeled to advance our common goals and values. We expect all who choose to participate onsite at the Lead Together conference to give the best we have to offer so we can harness our common desire for a stronger and more unified RID, dedicated to fostering the highest degree of linguistic access for the Deaf Community possible. The recommendations that come out of the work of leadership track participants at the Lead Together conference will be used to define the 2018-2022 RID Strategic Plan.

     Medical Interpreting: How can I interpret that?  (NEW!)  Through many mentor sessions working with interpreters, I have kept notes to share. It's amazing to see how interpreters creatively face challenges as they translate from English to ASL. I treasure opportunities to help interpreters improve their visual thinking, which Deaf audiences appreciate.   My workshop offers a myriad of ways to make interpreting more visual. We will demonstrate how classifiers may be used most effectively to communicate specific information in medical interpreting situations. Broaden your understanding of visual interpreting techniques regarding anatomical and medical interpreting. Learn more about Deaf Culture. Visual clips, visual aids, analysis, current medical terminology, and outlines will be available. This workshop will focus on surgery procedures, medical tools, birth, and causes of injury, illness and conditions.   

     

    July 27, 2017 @ 5 pm – 9 pm

    Non-Manual Signals: ASL Markers (NEW!) This workshop has a focus on non-manual markers, which are not distinctive "hand signs" yet are essential language morphemes. Interpreters will analyze and apply these grammatical markers, which involve eye and head movements, facial movements and body postures rather than the use of "signs" as distinct lexical elements. Video clips and discussion will increase interpreters' confidence in the use of non-manual markers.  

     

    July 28, 2017 @ 9 am – 1 pm

    Terminology in Voice Interpreting (NEW!)  In interpreting work, choosing appropriate terminology is key. To assure that professional standards are maintained during meetings, conversations, and appointments, interpreters should match the speaker or signer’s register and tone, and be alert to the cultural nuances within both Deaf and hearing communities. Let’s work to develop a list of appropriate words and phrases that will fit various situations, and list words that are inappropriate for various situations.  

                                                                                                                              

    July 28, 2017 @ 5 pm – 9 pm

    Interpreting Biology, Health, and Human Development Information (NEW!)   

    Interpreting in classes such as anatomy, biology, health, child development and parenting can certainly be a challenge! Developing ASL visualization skills within these topics, this workshop will provide helpful interpreting demonstrations and practice exercises. Find out how scientific concepts expressed in English may be clarified visually and communicated in a timely and efficient manner. Interpreters can apply these visualization skills to many topics, bringing scientific discussions to life in ASL!

     

    July 29, 2017 ~ Saturday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

     ENGLISH EQUIVALENTS: Whoa! Train Zoom Gone.  Did You See What She Signed? What did she mean by that and how can I say it in English?

    English Equivalents help the student take signs that do not have just one translation in English and help the participant become aware of idiomatic English translations along with some technical vocabulary associated with particular signs.  English Equivalents in ASL will help you confidently continue the flow of information exchange from ASL to English and from English to ASL

    My workshops benefit participants at all levels. Countless advanced interpreters have let me know that they enjoyed learning updated/new signs that they haven’t seen before, such as regional accents. They also loved it when I explained how to sign messages into ASL, rather than just signing in English word by word.  Interpreters appreciate that my workshops are excellent for review as well as for discovering new things that apply within the professional work environment. Students also mentioned that my workshops helped them to understand how to approach their own projects, research, and practice more effectively.
