Christopher Goscha: « Towards a History of Modern Vietnam » [Cornell University]

[ndlr] Excellente conférence de notre collègue Christopher Goscha à l’occasion de la présentation de son nouvel ouvrage sur le Viêt-Nam. Une nouvelle histoire pour comprendre la pluralité du Viêt-Nam d’aujourd’hui et comment ce pays s’est construit culturellement, géographiquement, humainement.

Cornell Voices on Vietnam Spring 2016 Speakers’ Series presents  Professor Christopher Goscha (Professor of History at Université du Québec à Montréal) – « Towards a History of Modern Vietnam. » Recorded May 5, 2016.

This event is co-sponsored by Southeast Asia Program, the Department of Asian Studies, the Department of History and the Department of Government.

Acclaimed historian and Vietnam specialist Christopher Goscha discusses his latest work, The Penguin History of Modern Vietnam (2016). Popular impressions of Vietnam are still largely dominated by the Vietnam War, with most English-language accounts focused on American experiences, sources, and perspectives. But Vietnam’s history is much richer and more complex than a mere Cold War confrontation, complete with expansion, schisms, colonial conquest and subjugation, cultural renaissance, and revolution.

Drawing on research and discoveries from a host of Vietnamese-language and global sources, Professor Goscha outlines a rich and compelling overview of modern Vietnamese history, portraying a cast of memorable characters – from Emperors to rebels, poets to priests – and providing a fascinating look at the intricacies and complexities of modern Vietnamese history. Compelling for scholars and non-specialists alike, The Penguin History of Modern Vietnam represents the first English-language general history of contemporary Vietnam.

We invite the scholars involved in the research of the Vietnamese diaspora to the participation in the conference organized by Institute of Sociology (University of Warsaw) and Institute of Philosophy and Sociology (Polish Academy of Science).

During the conference, we will discuss various dimensions of the presence of Vietnamese migrant communities dispersed around the world. The origins of Vietnamese migrant communities living in various countries are differentiated, including the colonial history (France), flow of refugees after the end of Vietnamese War (United States, countries of Western Europe) and cooperation between communist government of Vietnam and other countries of Soviet Bloc (Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, former East Germany). Vietnamese migration involves more recent phenomenon of economic migration.  Vietnamese residing in particular countries are a part of global Vietnamese diaspora, maintaining various ties with country of origin as well as other Vietnamese communities dispersed around the world. The connections maintained between the Vietnamese around the world and flow of cultural phenomena include multiple areas, such as business strategies, political activism and religious engagement.

The conference is aimed to form a platform for the scholars investigating various aspect of presence of Vietnamese in Europe to share their research experience and enable the development of new concepts enabling to grasp the fluid nature of transnational flows.

Participants will be granted the opportunity to submit their papers for publication.

The applications, including the topic of the presentation and abstract (max. 300 words) should be sent to szymanskag@is.uw.edu.pl until 20 February 2014.

ChristopherGoscha[ndlr] L’émission La Fabrique de l’histoire (France Culture) poursuit son investigation sur le Viêt-Nam ancien et contemporain avec un entretien avec l’historien Christopher E.
