The Impact of Culture, Ethnicity, Race and Religion in the Vietnam War
March 23-24, 2007
Holiday Inn Park Plaza, Lubbock, TX
The Vietnam Center invites papers as well as complete panel proposals that examine the interplay between US, Vietnamese, and other participant nations' cultures for the entire period of US diplomatic and military activity in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. This can include some of the earliest interactions between the US and Indochina. We also encourage paper submissions that discuss more nuanced topics to include internal ethnic, religious, and racial conflicts within Vietnam, the U.S., and Southeast Asia, as well as race and cultural relationships within military forces, government agencies and institutions, and civilian organizations. Given the breadth and potential depth of this topic, it is our sincere desire that willing participants will help shape the agenda by providing insightful and creative proposals.
Both individual and panel proposals are welcome. If you are interested in participating, please submit a one page proposal that describes the topic you would like to discuss along with your resume or CV to Dr. Steve Maxner, Deputy Director for the Vietnam Center.
