Fall 2017.  My current focus is on the experiences of Vietnamese refugees in the U.S. after the Fall of Saigon.  Because of warfare, the complicated relationship between South Vietnam and the U.S., and more complications after the demise of South Vietnam, this movement to the U.S. was unusual and singular in many respects.  In particular, I am looking into the experiences of the Catholic refugees, but also music by refugees, postwar imprisonment, and anticommunist protests.
