5th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

4/5/2018 - 4/7/2018
The Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language (SSHL) is an initiative aimed to offer an intellectual forum to discuss the variable linguistic reality of Spanish heritage bilingualism in the United States (and elsewhere), and the diverse pedagogical needs of students of Spanish as a heritage language.

It serves as a venue for both researchers and educators at all levels to share, develop, and discuss theoretical and practical approaches that recognize and validate the study of Spanish as a heritage language from the perspectives of various academic disciplines.

The SSHL provides a space to bridge the gap between research findings and the praxis of heritage language teaching, as we collaborate towards the implementation of pedagogies that allow heritage learners not only to develop their language proficiency but also to reflect on their own identity formation.

The 5th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language will be held April 5th - 7th, 2018 at The University of Iowa.

REGISTRATION FEES
Faculty, Teachers & Administrators Early Registration (before March 16th): $125
Students Early Registration (before March 16th): $60
Faculty, Teachers & Administrators Late Registration (on/after March 16th): $175
