The UW-UM Hmong Studies Consortium
The objective of the consortium is to promote critical Hmong studies in a range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. With funding from the Henry Luce Foundation, the emphasis of the consortium will be on developing academic activities and projects on the Hmong of Asia and on topics with transnational significance within the Hmong diaspora. In pursuing these scholarly objectives the consortium will also encourage comparative research and study of the Hmong and their relations with other ethnic groups and the major states within the geographic area that is increasingly being designated as "Zomia." The consortium will concentrate initially on two major projects: 1) convening a bi-annual conference on critical Hmong studies (the first in Spring 2011 at UW-Madison and the second in Spring 2013 at UM); and 2) collecting and archiving resources on Hmong studies at the two major repositories at UW and UM.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Minnesota gratefully acknowledge the Henry Luce Foundation for its support of Hmong Studies.
