Memories of Indochina

Panel discussion and film screening

Friday, September 27, 2013, 2:00 p.m.

Institute of French Studies Colloquium

Although colonial situations and wars of independence have attracted considerable attention, both public and scholarly, the French colonization of Indochina and the First Indochina War have been largely ignored. Our event brings together a documentary film-maker and scholars of Indochina and its plural memories, in France, the U.S. and Viet Nam.

Organized by Jean-François Klein (Université de Nantes), visiting professor (Institute of French Studies, NYU) and Frédéric Viguier (Institute of French Studies, NYU)
