VIET 361: Postwar Viet Nam in Literature, Media, and Film, taught by Bich-Ngoc Turner; A Term Only, Summer 2016, M-F 1:10-3:20, SLN 14273, 5 Credits, VLPA/I&S

Viet Nam has transformed significantly since the end of the Viet Nam/American War. In this course, we will explore how major changes in Vietnamese society, culture, and domestic politics since 1975 have made profound impacts upon the lives of Vietnamese people living in Viet Nam as well as on the Vietnamese diaspora communities in North America and Eastern Europe.

The course materials combine academic journal articles, documentaries, novel excerpts, short stories, and films to help students achieve a critical look at the relationship between utopian dreams, their results, and everyday realities while Viet Nam rebuilt itself and reintegrated with the world during this period (1975-present).
