via Yale University, a workshop based on the work of Vietnam scholar John K. Whitmore. Zoom registration in the link below.
For the past several decades, Dr. John K. Whitmore has engaged in pathbreaking and compelling research that has challenged and redirected how scholars study the Vietnamese past. His publications have covered a wide terrain, including the China-Vietnam borderlands, elephants, the dynamics of elite politics, imperial Vietnamese cartography, Lê institutions, and the history of archival sources for the study of early Vietnam.
This online workshop, hosted on Zoom by Yale’s Council on Southeast Asia Studies (CSEAS), will take place on Friday, October 16th and Saturday, October 17th 2020. The workshop will be organized around a set of presentations by core participants who will each speak briefly (10-15 minutes) about how their own work intersects with a specific piece of Dr. Whitmore’s scholarship. These brief sketches will become starting points for discussion among the wider audience of attendees as moderated by the organizers.
