Connecting across Languages and Cultures: A Heritage Language Festchrift in Honor of Olga Kagan

Bauckus, Susan and Susan Kresin (eds.)

As the founding director of the National Heritage Language Resource Center and the Heritage Language Journal, Olga Kagan has been a core figure in the development of the field of heritage language studies. By promoting both the creation of a foundational research base and specialized pedagogical training, she has played a seminal role in establishing effective methodologies that address the specific needs of heritage language learners.

The present volume seeks to pay homage to her work by bringing together heritage language specialists who work in various domains and with various languages. Following the model of her work, the editors aim to create bridges between pedagogical and linguistic research, and between researchers and practitioners.
