The Hmong Diaspora Field School is a team-based research program focused on understanding the social and cultural dynamics in the Hmong Diaspora through ethnographic research. The program will focus on a community of Hmong refugees from Southeast Asia living in central France. France is home to thousands of Hmong refugees who resettled there in the aftermath of the Second Indochinese war, which ended in 1975. The research in the program will address issues of religion, ritual practice and healing, cultural change and adaptation, intergenerational dynamics, and other issues that are relevant to understanding how people adapt to new social contexts. This research program will provide grounded ethnographic training to the student members of the research team (including both undergraduate and graduate students) while we conduct cutting-edge research on theoretically innovative topics. Students will receive mentored training in ethnographic research (including a broad array of social science methods) and use these skills to conduct fieldwork on various topics. This program is based in the Department of Anthropology but is relevant to a wide variety of research interests including art, Asian studies, French studies, folklore, history, law, linguistics, music, philosophy, political science, psychology, religious studies, and sociology.
