Speaking Across Genders Expanded: A Practical Application of Appropriate Voicing Techniques (PPO)

Regular price $90.00 Sale


This workshop was originally streamed live in April 2021.


Language: Spoken English

Workshop Description:


Whether you have attended Clint’s previous workshops on this topic before or not, he has completely re-vamped and expanded on theories related to gender discourse nuances and the need for interpreters to assess and adjust to the sociolinguistic needs of Deaf consumers whose gender identity is different from the hearing interpreter’s. Clint has added extensive opportunities to apply these theories appropriately when interpreting from ASL to English.

Educational Objectives:

At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • identify differences in gender discourse styles

  • summarize the history behind why men and women communicate the way they do

  • explore non-binary and other gender identities and possible discourse nuances/norms.

  • develop strategies for gender matching and balancing cross-cultural issues when voicing for consumers whose gender identity is different than the interpreter’s 

  • demonstrate strategies and post-analyze appropriateness of adjustments made when voicing across genders
