The Occasional Paper Series (which began publication in 1985) made available selected theses or scholarly papers written by students in the department. The series was a supplement to the departmental publication, UH Working Papers in Second Language Studies (formerly UHWP in ESL; see below).
Publication of the Occasional Paper Series was underwritten by a grant from the Ruth Crymes Scholarship Fund (pdf). Persons interested in purchasing any of these Occasional Papers should contact the department secretary for a list of titles and prices.
The Department of SLS publishes a newsletter, called the SLSletter, once or twice a year. The purpose of the SLSletter is to keep alumni and other past members of the department abreast of what the department and its faculty and students are doing. It also contains announcements of happenings in the field of SLS such as upcoming conferences, etc. The SLSletter is distributed to students, faculty, alumni and to selected offices on the campus, and past issues are available on the department website.
Upon graduation, students of the department should keep the department secretary advised of their whereabouts so as to be sure to receive copies of the SLSletter. Moreover, any news items concerning the work and life of alumni are welcomed by the editor. Any such items should be addressed to: Editor, SLSletter, Department of SLS, University of Hawai‘i at Manoa, 1890 East-West Road, Honolulu, Hawai‘i 96822.
Second Language Studies
(formerly Working Papers in SLS)
Second Language Studies is a bi-annual publication of the Department of Second Language Studies. The series presents work in progress by faculty members and graduate students. Papers published in Second Language Studies reflect the focus of the Department\’s graduate curriculum, which emphasizes the integration of theory and practice in the belief that practical questions and solutions in language teaching should be accountable both to theory and empirical testing. Papers in Second Language Studies have the status of \’progress reports\’ and, in many instances, are published subsequently in revised form. JD Brown has been editor of the Department of SLS working papers since 1994.
Second Language Studies is available on-line.
