Fulbright US Scholar Grant in Vietnam


Through the Fulbright US Scholar Program in Vietnam, I will be working as a researcher affiliated with the Trường Đại học Khoa học Xã hội và Nhân văn (University of Social Sciences and Humanities) to continue developing a project based on the surveillance records of Nguyễn Thị Minh Khai in close proximity to sites from her history. I will be comparing the surveillance records of Nguyễn Thị Minh Khai, collected at the Archives Nationales d'Outre Mer in Aix-en-Provence, with records from the National Archives of Vietnam and contemporary visual material in order to understand the legacy of the colonial gaze in visual culture and technology and how these issues intersect with gender, ethnicity, and issues of identity.
