Welcome to the Hmong Studies Center at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. The Center was chartered in 2007. It is charged with developing and facilitating courses in Hmong Studies, supporting student and faculty research, and organizing on-campus events including a lecture series that will focus on Hmong life and culture and feature leading scholars and professionals. Look for additional information to be added during the year.
Neville Public Museum Exhibit -- Who Are the Hmong?
The Neville Public Museum in downtown Green Bay features an important exhibit titled Who Are the Hmong from September 29, 2012 - May 12, 2013. The exhibit explores the Hmong transition to the United States and their successful adaptation to their new country. It describes the harrowing experience of Hmong men and boys who fought as allies alongside Americans in the Vietnam War. It reveals the traditional Hmong culture that has survived for thousands of years through wars and migration. In answering the question, Who are the Hmong?, the exhibition hopes to foster an understanding of the Hmong community and create deeper connections with our new neighbors. For more information visit the Neville Public Museum website.
As part of their celebration of Hmong Culture in the United States, the Neville Public Museum will host a series of talks and presentations. The current talk is by Xia Moua, a UW-Green Bay graduate, on Hmong Entrepreneurs. For more information, visit the following link: Hmong Lecture Series.
As we prepare for the 2012-2013 academic year, there are a number of exciting things happening with the Hmolng Studies Center. We have developed a collection of traditional as well as contemporary Hmong textiles and other materials, from Thailand, China, and the United States, that will be used in our Hmong Studies courses. And we are looking forward to developing a Hmong Studies minor for students at UW-Green Bay.
Please visit our Hmong Collection to see some of the items that we have collected for the Hmong Studies Center at UW-Green Bay.
