Vietnamese Modernities: Visual Culture, Education and Development
The Comparative History of Ideas program invites students from all areas of study to apply to our summer A-term Vietnam program. Participants will earn full-time UW credit and will maintain financial aid and resident status. The Vietnamese Modernities Program offers students linguistic, academic and applied training in Vietnam. Participants receive Vietnamese language training, a practicum experience, and an in-depth understanding of contemporary Vietnam from the perspective of cinema, the fine arts, humanities and interpretative social sciences.
Students reside in the historically rich, cosmopolitan capital city of Hanoi, and take part in several excursions including Ha Long Bay, Hoi An in Central Vietnam and the southern metropolitan area of Ho Chi Minh City. This program is organized, directed and taught by Professor Jonathan Warren – an Associate Professor in the Jackson School of International Studies who has directed study abroad programs to Brazil and Vietnam for over seven years.
