  • Description

    MJ Jones, a graduate student in the Interpretation and Translation M.A. program, teamed up with California State University, Northridge professors Dr. William Garrow, '03, G-'05 & PhD '13, Dr. Lissa Stapleton, and student researcher Jasmine Ruffin to give a presentation titled "The Impact of Racism on the Field of American Sign Language Interpreting." The presentation, held on June 1, 2017 at the Critical Race Studies in Education Association Conference at Indiana University, Purdue, brought to light the micro, meso, and macro-aggressions that students of color face, which discourages them from pursuing an interpreting career or possibly choosing to no longer pursue an interpreting degree.
