Presented by Miako Rankin PhD CI/CT

Workshop/course Description:

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the concept of linguistic
variation, focusing on the social factors that lead to variation in ASL use. We will
consider how people’s identity in terms of age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual
orientation, region of origin, etc. affects their language use and discuss the
implications of identity and identity perception on the expressed and perceived
message. Once we are comfortable with identifying these aspects of language use,
we will consider how/when/why to incorporate dynamically equivalent identity
expression in interpretations, and examine the ethical considerations of
representing identities other than our own. Participants will practice by viewing
videotapes of ASL presentations or narratives, identifying the sociolinguistic
factors that potentially influence the language use, considering the various
implications of the sociolinguistic factors on interpretation, and working together
to produce interpretations that incorporate representations of identity.
