A highly interactive workshop designed to test interpreter’s knowledge of the Code of Professional Conduct, critical thinking skills, understanding and comprehension of cultural mediation issues and how all these disciplines intersect.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER: For more than 15 years Alan R. Abarbanell has toured the United States with his one-man show, The Abababa Road Tour, which are the hilarious and touching chronicles of his life as a hearing man, growing up in the world of the deaf. ABABABA is an amalgamation of every mispronunciation and misspelled version of his last name and was bestowed upon him by a dear friend who got tired of trying to say it correctly. The World of Abababa is a series of shows and workshops written by Alan that exemplify the crosssectionality of language and culture, But rather than emphasize how those differences separate us, Alan's presentations crystalize the unity among us all.
