Supporting Deaf People 2010

Date: February 2010

Our biggest and best SDP conference so far! Keynotes were from Kelly Murphy (Warning: Explicit Content! Profanity as a function of language and strategies for interpreters) and Anna Mindess and Thomas K. Holcomb (Recognizing politeness differences between deaf and hearing cultures: a key to effective interpreting). There were 332 participants, and around 1500 postings.

Feedback for the conference was, as always, excellent, and included:

  • This has been my first SDP On-Line Conference. It has been incredibly informative as well as providing opportunity for more thought.
  • Wow, what a conference this year!! Every year they keep getting better and better. This years topics and discussions were excellent.
  • This is definitely my favorite conference to attend, by far! You can attend in your pyjamas with your own coffee and the discussions are fascinating.
