TRANSCRIPT: Hello everyone, my name is Amy Fowler, and I am so very honored to be a presenter for the MCDHH Interpreters Conference. My workshop is titled “Language & Identity.” I will share findings and research done on interpreters and their language choices. I will share my perspective on my clients, both hearing and Deaf, and how that may influence my interpreting work. That will be a topic of analysis and discussion. We will take a sociolinguistic approach and consider gender, age, race, religion, and various other factors that may influence our interpreting work. So let’s come together for MCDHH and the 24th Annual Interpreters Conference!
