Amerasia Journal Special Issue

"Vietnamese Americans/Creating Diasporas and Destinies" is the theme of a special Amerasia Journal issue slated for 2003 publication. Highlighted will be the diversity of the population and moving beyond the typical "refugee" model that focuses on them as victims of the Vietnam/American War and its aftermath. Like other Amerasia Journal special issues, this will be an interdisciplinary collection that brings together the work of scholars, activists, writers, artists, and community workers.
