Personal profile


Mark Halley, PhD, NIC, CoreCHI-P™ is Associate Professor of ASL/English Interpreting in the College of Education and Human Services. Dr. Halley conducted his dissertation research in the Department of Interpretation and Translation at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC, where he studied the work of interpreters in the 1988 Deaf President Now protest. His research agenda centers around a) contextualized role enactment of signed language interpreters in contentious political settings and b) the intersections of language and technology with interpreting practice and education. In addition to numerous articles published in peer-reviewed academic journals, he has presented at conferences in the United States, England, Italy, Poland, Scotland, the Netherlands, and Qatar. He has also been a certified interpreter in private practice since 2011 and works in community and video relay service settings. His greatest joys in life come from walking his dog, Elio, advocating for faculty rights and academic freedom as President of the University of North Florida chapter of the United Faculty of Florida (UFF-UNF), and once being described as "basically correct" by Noam Chomsky.
