News: Miako Rankin presented “Educational Interpreting: What’s Linguistics Got to Do With It?” in August, 2016

On August 31, Linguistics faculty member Miako Rankin traveled to Fredericksburg, Virginia, to meet with educational interpreters in the Spotsylvania School District (a few of whom are pictured here). Together they explored ways that a cognitive linguistic framework can inform interpreter decision making, ideally leading to better outcomes for deaf students in mainstream programs. It was a lively and fruitful discussion with wide-ranging potential positive impact. Future meetings will continue this community engagement, expanding the discussion to include school administrators and policy makers as well.
