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.
No other way to end my 13 months in Paris than a conference to validate some research I’ve done this year. We are also (softly) kicking off the Congrès with a huge get-together among Vietnamese studies folks, à Paris!
I will be presenting alongside Phuong Ngoc Nguyen, Anh Tuan Cam, Amandine Dabat, Thi Sinh Ninh, Thi Quynh Tram Nong, Thi Phuong Hoa Tran, Liem Vu Duc, & Will Pore
