Translation & Interpretation Experiences & Perceptions among Latina/o High School Language Brokers in Oregon
Angel Dorantes, Department of Education Studies
Angel Dorantes is a doctoral candidate in the Critical and Sociocultural Studies in Education program. His research agenda includes issues of access and equity in education, and the experiences of Latina/o children/adolescents who translate for their parents. Recently, he co-authored a journal article, titled, “Reforzando las Redes: Supporting Latina/o Undergraduates at a State Flagship University,” that was published in the Journal of Hispanic Higher Education.
Angel’s dissertation explores the experiences of Latina/o high school students who translate and/or interpret for their parents and their perceptions regarding benefits and concerns commonly associated with this practice and their views on their own acculturative processes.
This event is free and open to the public.
