Youth Identities in North and South Vietnam during the War (1965-1975)

I will complete a book titled "Raising Vietnamese: Youth Identities in North and South Vietnam during the War (1965-1975)," a comparative analysis of how Vietnamese on both sides of the conflict shaped the identities of their youth, using texts produced for youth and by youth in North and South Vietnam. The project contrasts the highly centralized agenda of indoctrination in the North with the lack of any such policy in the South and the results produced by these approaches. Primarily focused upon literary, journalistic, and pedagogical writings, this project is also oriented toward historical, social, and political contexts. It opens the unexplored field of research on children and youth in Vietnamese studies and allows an inside view of northern and southern Vietnamese societies with contrasting visions of the present and future for each side. It will also significantly expand our understanding of children/youth studies.
