An interesting opportunity for scholars on Vietnam (+ Leiden in June)! This year’s theme is about uncovering different spaces and histories where Vietnam and Europe overlap, which can range from the presence of Vietnamese snacks in East Berlin (who knew?), the nostalgia for Paris in the infamous variety show Paris by night, even the presence of Russian tourists in Da Nang, Nha Trang, the list goes on.
The deadline for proposals is April 15th, 2019.
Thanks to Michael Miller, one of the Cornell Southeast Asia Program Graduate Organizers this year, we were able to record a conversation about the Gatty Lecture I gave in September as a way to debrief and share a little more about my work.
Tune into any of these platforms to listen to some of my reflections as well as to catch any other lectures you may have missed!
As a post-script, I really want to credit Ben Tran’s Postmandarin (2017), Philippe Papin for sharing selections from Imagerie populaire du Vietnam (2011) with me, and the [difficult!] questions I received after the talk which served as a premise for our conversations.
