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.
