Primaries, Caucuses, Gerrymandering

(and other words I hope I don’t have to interpret)

By Alek Lev


Saturday, December 11, 2021

11:00am - 3:00pm

$20 (PARID members) / $30 (Non-members) / $10 (student members)


Workshop Description:

The Presidential campaign is upon us, and it brings with it democracy and democrats, the election and the electoral college, constituents, primaries, the commander-in-chief, and of course, gerrymandering. In short, the election presents unique interpreting challenges from the language of politics. This workshop is for interpreters who believe that if there are people willing to talk or teach about American politics, we should do a super-heroic job interpreting for them. This is a brief, but deep dive into elections, government, the constitution, ideology and parties, and presidential power.


This workshop will be presented in ASL and is intended for all interpreters (hearing and deaf) and interpreting students. Upon completion, participants will receive 0.4 PS CEUs.


Zoom link will be sent out on Friday, December 10, 2021.


Objectives:

1) Understand how the Constitution defines the electoral process for the President and the Congress

2) Discover the historical differences between Democrats and Republicans

3) Interpret 26 key political terms

4) Define role and structure of the U.S. Congress

5) List 9 presidential powers and describe 3 in detail

6) Analyze the complexity of the primary and general election processes

7) Recognize the challenges of interpreting for the idiom of politics, and develop strategies
