‘Whose Vietnam? The enduring echo of the Vietnam War’
A University of Amsterdam conference / Netherlands American Studies Association Fall Event
Amsterdam, 8 October 2010
On October 8th of this year, a conference on the legacy of Vietnam is organized at the University of Amsterdam. This one-day event will feature several panels dealing with topics as diverse as the social, cultural and military legacies of the Vietnam War, memory-constructions in visual arts, literature, pop-music and the internet, the resonance of the war in countries outside the United States and memorialization and remembrance. Keynote speakers are Christian Appy, author of the highly acclaimed Patriots: the Vietnam War remembered from all sides and Patrick Hagopian, whose recent The Vietnam War in American Memory: veterans, memorials, and the politics of healing has received much praise as an outstanding contribution to the literature on the legacy of the Vietnam War.

Student members of the Netherlands American Studies Association (NASA) enjoy free entrance. A discount-membership is available at the conference for only 5,- euro, to be purchased in tandem with the conference-fee.
