The Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language (SSHL) is an initiative aimed to offer an intellectual forum to discuss (i) the variable linguistic reality of Spanish heritage bilingualism in the United States (and elsewhere), and (ii) the diverse pedagogical needs of students of Spanish as a heritage language. It serves as a venue for both researchers and educators at all levels to share, develop, and discuss theoretical and practical approaches that recognize and validate the study of Spanish as a heritage language from the perspectives of various disciplines, including Second Language Acquisition, Sociolinguistics, Psycholinguistics, and Applied Linguistics, among others. The SSHL provides a space to bridge the gap between research findings and the praxis of heritage language teaching, as we collaborate towards the implementation of pedagogies that allow heritage learners not only to develop their language proficiency but also to reflect on their own identity formation.The Department of Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures at Texas Tech University is proud to host the second annual Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language, which will be held on February 12-14, 2015.

We are proud to announce the participation of the following Plenary Speakers:
- Dr. María Carreira, California State University, Long Beach
- Dr. Almeida Jacqueline Toribio, University of Texas at Austin
- Dr. Guadalupe Valdés, Stanford University
