Contested Territory: America’s Involvement in Vietnam, 1945-1975

A two-week summer institute for 36 K-12 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 (NHC) 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. Although the fiftieth anniversary of the Vietnam War has passed, American classrooms are still grappling with the complexities of that conflict. This institute will combine fresh scholarship, hands-on visualization technology, and best practice humanities pedagogy with a targeted goal of addressing this need.
