In this workshop we will examine the “ins and outs” of the coroner’s office. We will discuss what can happen during an interpreting assignment at the coroner's office. We will identify different aspects of interpreting in this possibly high-stress environment through scenario discussion activities, while recognizing the Deaf perspective of this environment. We will collect and share knowledge of the autopsy procedure and point out some “fun facts” about the coroner's office.
