2020 Clear Vision: Culture, Intersectionality & Diversity

Conference Theme:

In 2016, when a keen group of WAVLI members brainstormed about a conference theme if we were to host CASLI 2020, we recognized that interpreters could really benefit from ongoing exploration of topics that stretch us to consider the complexities of individual and group identities, and how those complexities impact our work and our community of practice. 

Each one of us, each interpreter, each consumer, is a complicated human whose various identities (cultural, racial, sexual, gender, etc) intersect. Our intersectionalities affect how we are positioned in each socio-cultural-linguistic-political context; they relate to dimensions of power and privilege, to notions of allyship and representation. 

Whose voice is included or excluded? Whose vision is held up or disregarded? Where is there space to meet? Let’s consider these and other important questions in a spirit of openness, humility and collegiality. 

Let’s have a great conference in Vancouver!

2020 Une Vision Claire: Culture, Intersectionnalité & Diversité
Français:
Lorsqu'un groupe enthousiaste de membres de WAVLI s'est rencontré en 2016 pour réfléchir sur un thème de conference si nous acceptions d'être l'association hôte de CASLI 2020, nous avons dés lors compris que les interprètes pourraient vraiment profiter d'une exploration continue sur certains sujets qui nous poussent à considérer la complexité des identités individuelles et de groupe, et comment ces complexités ont un impact sur notre travail et notre pratique individuelle et en tant que communauté d'interprètes.  
 
Chacun de nous, chaque interprète, chaque consommateur, est un être humain complexe dont les différentes identités (culturelle, raciale, sexuelle, identité de genre, etc.) se croisent. Nos intersections affectent notre position dans chaque contexte socioculturel, linguistique et politique; elles ont trait aux dimensions du pouvoir et des privilèges, aux notions d’alliance et de représentation. 
 
Quelle voix est incluse ou exclue? Quelle vision est retenue ou ignorée? Examinons ces questions et d’autres questions importantes avec un esprit ouvert, d’humilité et de collégialité.  
 
Passons une excellente conférence à Vancouver! On se voit ici

Transcript:

Hello WAVLI members!

 

I’m Caroline Tetreault, Chairperson for the WAVLI Fundraising Committee.  The goal of this committee is to raise funds specifically for the CASLI 2020 Conference.

 

I'd like to share one easy way you can help us with fundraising. Some of you are already doing this on a regular basis! Now you can do this and support the conference. 

 

Here's what you can do: Find all of your empty beer, wine, pop bottles etc.  Get a clear plastic bag, or a blue recycling bag. Put everything in the bag.  No need to separate containers or count them. 

 

Go online and find the nearest RETURN IT EXPRESS location. When you get there, you will see an EXPRESS Kiosk. 

Type in: 604-313-2955. The name, Suzie Giroux, should appear on the screen. Suzie is our Conference Treasurer. Click ok. 

 

The next screen will ask you how many bags you have. Print one label for each bag. Peel the label off and stick it on the bag.  Drop off the bags in the designated area.  

And that's it! You have just made a donation to CASLI 2020 Conference! 

 

Thank you so much for your support!
