Call for Session Proposals!
The Hmong Language Association (HLA), sponsored by the Department of Linguistics and the College of Arts and Humanities of California State University, Fresno, hosts its first Hmong Language & Culture Workshop.
The theme is “Sharing Experiences of Teaching and Knowledge of the Hmong Language and Culture”.

HLA is seeking presentation proposals for a one-day workshop that is opened to all interested persons, teachers, researchers, students and community members. Presentation proposals must be related to the Hmong language, culture, literature, history, arts, or music in addition to the teaching or pedagogy. For example, a paper might: critically explore the techniques in teaching pronunciation such as the tones, a skill like reading, a cultural piece like poetry or discuss the teaching approaches and/or personal experiences in using the target language in class or developing teaching materials; analyze a text using elements from various didactic theories; report an empirical study that engages the learning skills; or a research study on the Hmong language. All proposals must be written in English or Hmong, and should follow the following guidelines (See Suggested Proposal Form).
The workshop will take place on the campus of California State University, Fresno.
More details will be sent to the selected presenters.
