Intercultural Communication for Sign Language Interpreters
In the first edition of Reading Between the Signs, author Anna Mindess provides a new perspective on a unique culture that is not widely understood - American deaf culture. With the collaboration of distinguished consultants Thomas Holcomb, Daniel Langholtz and Priscilla Moyers, Mindess explores the implications of cultural differences at the intersection of the Deaf and hearing worlds.
This new edition includes chapters on recent changes in technology, particularly video relay services (VRS), and how these changes has affected Deaf culture and sign language interpreting. There are also new and expanded sections on the multicultural communities within the Deaf world addressing the values and needs of Deaf people who are Asian American, African American, Latino and American Indian.
