St. Paul, Minn. (Dec. 26, 2018) — The new issue of the Hmong Studies Journal was published last week, according to Mark E. Pfeifer, Ph.D., publisher and the journal.
This issue’s articles examine important topics in the Hmong American community include sex education, the use of skin whiteners and mental health, he said.
“I am particularly pleased with the three book reviews included in the issue,” Pfeifer said. “These reviews authored by veteran Hmong Studies scholars in Anthropology and Musicology assess recent works related to Gender Studies and Hmong Music in Southeast Asia.
