Hmong Studies Consortium

     The objective of the Hmong Studies Consortium is to promote critical Hmong scholarship in a range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, and to build professional connections between researchers of the Hmong. The Consortium is interested in research related to all Hmong groups dispersed around the globe, including those in China, Southeast Asia, and the diaspora outside of Asia (U.S., France, Germany, French Guiana, Australia, etc.), as well as transnational Hmong connections. Originally established in 2009 as a partnership between the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities with the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation, more recently the Hmong Studies Consortium has expanded its membership to include Chiang Mai University in Thailand, and various other institutions in Wisconsin, Minnesota and elsewhere in the United States.

     To become affiliated and/or to be added to the Hmong Consortium listserve, for sharing information about Hmong-related activities across campuses, please email Prof. Ian Baird at ibaird@wisc.edu.
