Teaching the Vietnam War: A Conversation about War and Memory
with Pulitzer Prize Winner Viet Thanh Nguyen
On Saturday, October 22nd, the Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS), a federally funded National Resource Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in collaboration with the Wisconsin Book Festival, is offering a one-day K-12 professional development workshop in Madison, WI, on possibilities and challenges involved in teaching on the Vietnam War.
The workshop coincides with a visit to Madison by Professor Viet Thanh Nguyen of USC, who recently won the Pulitzer Prize for his debut novel, The Sympathizer. The workshop will begin with casual conversations among participants over coffee and other refreshments, but the main event will be a roundtable discussion featuring Professor Nguyen, Harrington Professor of History Alfred W. McCoy of UW-Madison, and Madison East High School history teacher, Bill Gibson. Their conversation will be followed by an hour of Q&A with workshop participants.
Deadline to register extended to Friday, October 14.
