Submission Title

Linfield Forensics (Speech and Debate) Showcase

Location

Ford Hall: Marshall Theatre

Subject Area

Communication Arts/Rhetoric

Description

This showcase, presented by students on Linfield College’s intercollegiate forensics team, offers an opportunity for the Linfield community to see a Spanish-language debate, a persuasive speech, and a duo interpretation performance. These represent a few of the events team members compete in throughout the year.

The United States is now home to the second largest Spanish-speaking population in the world, and in recent years the Linfield Forensics team has expanded to include practices and competitions in Spanish. The Linfield team has had great competitive success so far in Spanish-language debate, with teams competing in regional and international competitions. The debate includes four speakers (April Alvarez, Mia Burnett, Melissa Garibay, and Diana Vazquez Duque) and concludes with a brief moderated discussion (in Spanish and English) with the audience. All are welcome to attend regardless of Spanish comprehension.

Kelsey Bruce competes in several individual speaking and interpretation events. Bruce presents a persuasive speech, “Preparing for Emergencies in Everyday Life.” Angela McKelvey and Emmaline Irvine compete in duo interpretation. They perform ”Monster Got a Hold on Me.”
