November 2018- Kellie Stewart presents at the Conference of Interpreter Trainers titled: To Accept or Decline the Assignment: Results from an Early Research Study in Sign Language Interpreter Ethical Decision-Making

When interpreters make the single decision whether to accept or decline an interpreting assignment, the potential for a successful and effective interpreted interaction rests in part on the practitioner's understanding of ethics, an honest self-assessment of skills, knowledge of the deaf consumer's language and interpreting needs, etc.; yet, little is understood regarding the ways in which interpreters rationalize and make those decisions. Using a qualitative approach, the purpose of this pilot study was to explore the ways in which interpreters working within for-profit interpreter referral businesses think about and rationalize the decision to accept or decline an interpreting assignment. The findings and implications of this early research project has important implications for practitioners and interpreter educators, as well as, for those who hire interpreters, and for d/Deaf people who are most affected by these decisions.

November 2018- Dr. Barbara Garrett and Emily Girardin were invited to present at the Conference of Interpreter Trainers, in November 2018.  This provided them the opportunity to begin conversations with interpreter educators to further the discussion and consider how we can be part of the resolution of this issue presented in their paper.
