This workshop will be presented over two days, November 14 & 15, 2014.
The Taboo workshop is an individual assessment of class status, gender privilege and race privilege and how an interpreter’s background, beliefs and upbringing may affect the interpreting process and delivery.
The course will encompass Self identification of wealth level in family of origin, beliefs about oppressed groups related to race, gender, language use, class status and other societal classifications.
