UW-Madison graduate student Laura Hamman is receiving the Graduate Student Travel Award from the American Educational Research Association’s Bilingual Education Research special interest group (SIG).

The bilingual education research SIG provides opportunities for the exchange of information among and between researchers and practitioners interested in issues related to bilingual education as well as linguistic/cultural issues related to language minority education, through presentations, discussions, formal and informal meetings, and publications, according to AERA.

Hamman is pursuing her Ph.D. from the School of Education’s No. 1-ranked Department of Curriculum and Instruction. She expects to complete her degree this year.

She also is presenting “Becoming bilingual in two-way immersion: Identities of promise and ideologies of difference” at the AERA Annual Conference in New York City.
