Presentation at the “Diasporic Heritage” Conference, University of Amsterdam

2023. On June 21, I had the privilege to attend and present at the “Diasporic Heritage and Identity” conference held at the Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (University of Amsterdam). My paper, entitled “’Make America Great Again’: (De)Colonising Masculinities in Viet Thanh Nguyen’s The Refugees (2017),” explores the representation of displaced masculinities within the Vietnamese diaspora, drawing on Nguyen’s collection of short stories. It was an enriching experience to share and exchange insights with fellow academics and experts in the field. My paper has also been published by Amsterdam University Press (AUP), a pioneering institution in Open Access (OA) publishing. I extend my gratitude to AUP and the University of Amsterdam for the opportunity.
