Legal Interpreting: A Meta Ethical Analysis

9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Interpreters who work in the legal arena are faced with ethical dilemmas that put them at odds with their status in the Deaf communities, their obligations as an RID member, and their role as an officer of the Court. Throughout this workshop, participants will discuss how these various identities affect the work of interpreters and discuss best practices for addressing them. Note: This workshop will be presented in ASL; spoken English interpretation will not be provided. Due to the discussion based instructional approach, live streaming will not be available for this event. Presenter: Dr. Jeremy Brunson, PhD, CI/CT, SC:L

Sean Berdy ASL Champions Series

6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Sean Berdy, best known for his 5-year portrayal of the "Deaf James Dean" character, Emmett, on “Switched at Birth”, strives to inspire others by using his own compelling life story as an example of what one can achieve if they never stop believing in themselves and refuse to let others define their limitations. Sean will also be performing an ASL version of his favorite song which has been viewed over 1 million times on social media. Following Berdy’s inspirational and humorous presentation, he will open the floor to questions and close the evening with an opportunity to say hello and snap a fun picture or two. Interpreting services will be provided so all students, faculty, and members of the community are encouraged to come enjoy the evening with Sean! Tickets are $25 per person with a share of the proceeds going to Mesa Community College Scholarship Program. Note: Tickets must be purchased online at http://seanberdy.ticketleap.com/mesa prior to the event. Tickets will NOT be sold at the door.
