Johnny Corcoran Johnny Corcoran, a Deaf photographer, discusses his passion for capturing eye-catching images. While working as a graphic designer, Johnny decided to change career paths to become a photographer. He explains what inspires him, the pressures of creating thr perfect weding album and he also has some advice for aspiring photographers.


Hands On: RewindThis week Alvean catches up with some young people who, back in 1996 when they were pupils in St Joseph’s and St Mary’s, told us what they wanted to be when they grew up. We bring them back into studio to see if they’ve followed their dreams of 14 years ago! You wouldn’t want to miss their reactions!  And if you were at St Joseph’s or St Marys in 1996 – you might just see yourself too!


ISL ChallengeThroughout this series we’ve been following Sinead Desmond, Margaret Farrell and Peadar Owens, three people nominated by their Deaf loved ones to learn Irish Sign Language. Their challenge was to transform themselves from novices to basic Irish Sign Language users. As the series draws to a close so does their 12 weeks of classes at the IDS. We meet them for the final time to see if they’re happy with their achievements so far, if it has made a difference to their loved ones and last but not least we ask them if they’ll keep it up!



So make sure you don’t miss it!!

Hands On - Sunday 23rd of January 2011

This Sunday we bring you a special feature programme about Cyril Axelrod, a Deaf-Blind priest who has lead a very inspirational life. Watch the ISL promo here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhvl31-byaU
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1942 to Orthodox Jewish parents, Cyril's deafness wasn't identified until he was 3 years old - his blindness would come much later. Due to limited facilities for Jewish Deaf children, his parents reluctantly sent him to St Vincent's, a Catholic School.
Despite attending a Catholic School, at home Cyril and his family were strict Orthodox Jews, attending Synagogue and celebrating feasts such as Passover and Yom Kippur. At age 15 he began training to become a Rabbi, only to have his dream shattered when he was told by the Chief Rabbi that his being "disabled" would prevent this from becoming reality.
In 1965 at age 23 he flew 800 miles to meet Bishop Green, a man known for his ministry to Deaf people in South Africa, who was surprised by Cyril's request to be ordained a Catholic priest considering he was still a Jew! He was baptised 3 months later and this year celebrates the 40th anniversary of his ordination as a Catholic Priest.
Cyril went on to become an inspirational figure, challenging the South African Government and defying Apartheid to set up the first multiracial school for Deaf children in South Africa. He would also devote 30 years of charity work in 5 different continents, learning to communicate in over 12 languages. He excelled academically, achieving a degree in philosophy/psychology while also becoming a qualified massage therapist. He also holds the distinction of being the only Deaf-Blind priest in the world. He achieved all of this because of his disabilities and not in spite of them.
Hands On had the pleasure of meeting this extraordinary man; we decided to devote a whole programme to one of life's interesting characters. This is quite simply unmissable!
Fr Cyril's book "And The Journey Begins" is available to order from all good Irish bookshops as well as from the publisher www.forestbookshop.com and www.Irishdeaf.com

Medical Signbank:
Research on Australian Sign Language interpreter and deaf patient strategies for developing Auslan medical terms


Jemina Napier
Macquarie University, Australia

                       

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011.

7.30 pm to 9.30 pm

Maxwell Hall, Hamilton Buildings, Trinity College.

ISL / English Interpretation will be provided.



Biography:
Jemina Napier is an Associate Professor in the Department of Linguistics at Macquarie University in Sydney. She established the only industry accredited university training program for signed language interpreters in Australia at Macquarie University in 2002, and has since become the Head of the Translation & Interpreting Section and Director of the Centre for Translation & Interpreting Research. Jemina has over 20 years experience as a signed language interpreter practitioner in three different signed languages (British Sign Language, Australian Sign Language & International Sign) and over 14 years experience as an interpreter educator. She is a former board member of the World Association of Sign Language Interpreters, and immediate past president of the Australian Sign Language Interpreters Association, and was instrumental in establishing the Australian Sign Language Interpreter Trainer Network. Her major research interest is in the field of signed language interpreting, but her wider interests include effective translation and interpreting pedagogy, sociolinguistics, and discourse analysis. She has published over 40 books, book chapters and articles discussing aspects of signed language interpreting and interpreting pedagogy. She has conducted research on the situated practice of signed language interpreters in educational, medical and legal contexts, and several qualitative studies that explore aspects of the signed language interpreting process or perceptions of interpreting. Jemina is a strong advocate for the importance of collaboration between spoken and signed language interpreter educators and researchers.

Abstract:
Researchers have identified the various challenges that can occur when interpreting for medical encounters, particularly if interpreters are untrained, do not have a clear understanding of their role, or do not understand the linguistic and discourse protocols of medical interactions (see for example Angelelli, 2003, 2005; Dysart-Gale, 2005; Wadensjö, 2001). Language, cultural and educational impediments in the effective use of signed language interpreters in medical and mental health service delivery have been identified by Australian researchers (Cornes & Napier, 2005; Napier & Cornes, 2004; Napier & Johnston, 2005), but until 2008 no linguistic research had been carried out in Australia on signed language interpreter-mediated medical encounters.

This presentation will describe the development of an innovative web-based interactive multimedia dictionary and database of Auslan (Medical Signbank) to create an effective, accepted and shared sign language vocabulary for the discussion of medical and mental health issues by deaf clients and health professionals, mediated through Auslan interpreters. The conceptual framework for this project is language planning and development within a small linguistic community of ‘limited diffusion’. This technology enables the direct participation of interpreters, deaf people and medical practitioners in a project managed by linguists, sign language interpreters, and language service providers (the National Auslan Interpreter Booking and Payment Service, and the New South Wales Health Care Interpreting Service).

The presentation will outline the progress of the project and give a demonstration of the Medical Signbank website, and specifically report on findings from workshops held with interpreters, and from focus groups conducted with deaf people about the strategies they use to deal with medical terms that have no Auslan equivalents, and their thoughts on challenges in medical interpreting.

Cork Deaf History:
Perspectives on Education, Language, Religion and Community
By
Graham O’Shea
(University College Cork)


Thursday, January 27th, 2011.

7.30 pm to 9.30 pm

Maxwell Hall, Hamilton Buildings, Trinity College.

ISL / English Interpretation will be provided.



Biography:
Graham O’Shea is a Corkman. He studied in University College Cork / Bristol University for his B.Sc in Deaf Studies. He is currently completing his M.Phil in History at UCC. He is a member of Deaf History International, and has previously been a member of the Board of the Irish Deaf Society.

Abstract:
This thesis looks at the history of the Cork Deaf community in the nineteenth century. It begins by focusing on developments in Deaf education in Cork at the beginning of this period, as well as looking at those children who attended Deaf schools in Dublin. The Cork Day School, its establishment, operation and methods of education are described in particular detail. The relationship between the various Deaf schools in the country in the early part of the nineteenth century is examined, as well as their contacts with the Poor Law system and local Boards of Guardians. The Cork Deaf community during this period is also examined in terms of socialising, language, religion, marriage and family, and the world of work.
