September 21-22, 2018: Deaf Trix Bruce Seminars in New Orleans, Louisiana! Thursday, Mar 15 2018 

From: Patricia Bruce <info>

Good News!!! Trix Bruceis coming to New Orleans, Louisiana!

September 21, 2018, Friday 9 am – 1 pm

♥ASL Semantics: Precision of Expression in ASL

Semantics is defined as the study of meanings expressed by the elements of a language or a combination of the elements. A concept expressed in an ASL sign often cannot be conveyed by a single all-purpose English word. Likewise, English words and phrases may have variations in meaning, which require translations using different ASL signs. This workshop helps the student advance skills in translating the languages of ASL and English. (0.4 RID CEUs)

September 21, 2018, Friday 5pm – 9 pm

Lexical Non-Manual Signals: The “TH” signal

This workshop has a focus on the non-manual “TH” signal. Interpreters will analyze and apply this grammatical marker in various contexts. Video clips and discussion will increase interpreters’ confidence. Contexts include: character development, structures, English idioms, conjunctions, adjectives, and more. (0.4 RID CEUs available)

September 22, 2018, Saturday 8am – 5 pm

Medical Interpreting: How can I interpret that?(NEW!)Through many mentor sessions working with interpreters, I have kept notes to share. It’s amazing to see how interpreters creatively face challenges as they translate from English to ASL. I treasure opportunities to help interpreters improve their visual thinking, which Deaf audiences appreciate. My workshop offers a myriad of ways to make interpreting more visual. We will demonstrate how classifiers may be used most effectively to communicate specific information in medical interpreting situations. Broaden your understanding of visual interpreting techniques regarding anatomical and medical interpreting. Learn more about Deaf Culture. Visual clips, visual aids, analysis, current medical terminology, and outlines will be available. This workshop will focus on surgery procedures, medical tools, birth, and causes of injury, illness and conditions. (0.8 RID CEUs)

September 20-21, 2018 Mentoring Services Available

Your own private Mentor! As your mentor, Trix will focus on you, providing individualized feedback and instruction in English/ASL translation and Deaf culture. Under the direction of an expert instructor, your skills will soar! Email for an appointment. We can meet at either a coffee shop, or in a hotel lobby. Mentor appointments are not included the workshop registration. There is a separate fee for a mentor appointment,

My workshops benefit participants at all levels. Countless advanced interpreters have let me know that they enjoyed learning updated/new signs that they haven’t seen before, such as regional accents. They also loved it when I explained how to sign messages into ASL, rather than just signing in English word by word. Interpreters appreciate that my workshops are excellent for review as well as for discovering new things that apply within the professional work environment. Students also mentioned that my workshops helped them to understand how to approach their own projects, research, and practice more effectively.
