Harold White Fellow Presentation Nathalie Nguyen
Memories of War: The Stories of Vietnamese Veterans in Australia
Vietnamese veterans have marched on Anzac Day since 1981. Yet little is known of their life stories, their war experiences or their perspectives of the Vietnam War and of Australia’s involvement in the war. Associate Professor Nathalie Nguyen will discuss her work on migration and memory, and the oral histories of Vietnamese veterans in Australia.
Associate Professor Nathalie Nguyen holds an ARC Future Fellowship at the National Centre for Australian Studies at Monash University. A Harold White Fellow in 2007-08, her second book Voyage of Hope: Vietnamese Australian Women’s Narratives was shortlisted for the 2007 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards, and her third book Memory Is Another Country: Women of the Vietnamese Diaspora received international recognition as a Choice Outstanding Academic Title, 2010.
