CO-SPONSORED EVENTS HELD AT THE HUMANITIES CENTER
California and Beyond: A Symposium with Vietnamese American Writers and Artists
Friday April 27, 2012 | 11:00
| Stanford Humanitites Center
We have gathered together a group of the most prominent and important Vietnamese and Vietnamese American artists, poets, film-makers, and essayists for a one-day symposium. These artists are core members of the Diasporic Vietnamese Artists Network (DVAN: http://www.dvanonline.org/ ), a group that has already had an international impact for its sensitive, committed explorations of Vietnamese history, culture, and art. As younger artists, they are engaged in the project to reassess and remember, and think too of the future. Their work thus shuttles between Vietnam and California, engaging in different issues of diaspora, homeland, remembrance, and visions of the present and future.
