Contested Territory of Vietnam

A two-week institute for thirty-six school teachers on the post-World War II French-Vietnamese conflict and American involvement in the Vietnam War. 

Contested Territory: America’s Involvement in Southeast Asia, 1945-1975 is a proposal by the National Humanities Center to the NEH Summer Institutes Program that aims to provide thirty-six secondary school humanities educators with a deeper understanding of how and why America became involved in fighting in Vietnam in the 1960s. With the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War approaching, American classrooms will soon be grappling with the complexities of that conflict without a strong sense of the connection with the post-World War II French-Vietnamese conflicts. This Institute will combine fresh, emerging scholarship, hands-on visualization technology, and best practice humanities pedagogy with a targeted goal of addressing this need.
