Presenter: Tuong Vu, Professor of Political Science and Director of Asian Studies at the University of Oregon
Title: Vietnam Revolution & War
Abstract: Tuong Vu is a Professor of Political Science and Director of Asian Studies at the University of Oregon. He has held visiting appointments at Princeton University and the National University of Singapore and has taught at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA. Vu’s research concerns the comparative politics of state formation, development, nationalism, and revolutions, with a particular focus on East Asia.
His latest book, Vietnam’s Communist Revolution: The Power and Limits of Ideology (Cambridge University Press, 2017), focuses on the evolving worldview of Vietnamese revolutionaries and shows the depth and resilience of the commitment to communist utopia in their foreign policy. The book challenges the conventional understanding of the Vietnam War and the Vietnamese revolution.
