4th annual Vietnam Learning and Reconciliation Study Tour
When we Americans first went to war in Vietnam, we knew little of its historical heritage or its people's national aspirations. Years later, after two and a half million Americans had served there and almost 60,000 had died, we had still learned little either about Vietnam or the experiences of those who served.
For the last four years the Sage Colleges and Sanctuary International have been working to recover something of that lost part of our national experience by organizing a series of Learning and Reconciliation Study Tours that emphasize both the geo-political & historical dimensions of the American involvement in Vietnam. These study tours, which have over the years brought together a wide variety of travelers from all over the world-- literally from college students and American Vietnam veterans to Vietnamese Americans and academics whose professional lives require them to understand Vietnam and the American experience there more deeply.
With the above in mind the Sage Colleges are particularly proud to
announce our upcoming fourth annual Vietnam Learning and Reconciliation
Study Tour which will take place during June of 2003. This year's study
tour offers several new elements to complement our previous travels, most importantly our first return to the Central Highlands since our trip of 2000 and an extension to Cambodia where we will encounter both the majesty of Angkor Wat and the poignancy of the Khmer Rouge's reign of terror.
The 4th Annual Sage Colleges' Vietnam Learning & Reconciliation Study tour will be led by Prof. Steven A. Leibo Ph.D. (International
History & Politics at Sage/H-ASIA leader editor & WAMC Northeast Public
Radio Commentator) and Song Din Tran, a former Vietnamese high school
history teacher, expert on travel in Vietnam and a veteran of the Vietnam War.
