Integrating Knowledge: The Multiple Ways of Knowing Vietnam

Integrating Knowledge: The Multiple Ways of Knowing Vietnam

December 16-17, 2013
Thai Nguyen University, Thai Nguyen Province, Vietnam
Conference website: www.engagingwithvietnam.com/

Deadline for Abstract Submission: 15 August 2013
For this 5th Engaging with Vietnam: An Interdisciplinary Dialogue Conference, we are encouraging participants to reflect on the issue of integration, particularly as it concerns the production of knowledge. What does it mean when we say that there is scholarly integration between Vietnam and the rest of the world? What is it that scholarship in Vietnam is integrating with? Is there only one form of “world scholarship” that can be integrated into? Or are there many? Are there some forms of knowledge that cannot be integrated into other ways of knowing? And finally, to what degree has the production of knowledge in Vietnam actually already become integrated with the production of knowledge in other parts of the world? Is the degree of integration the same across the disciplines?

These are some of the questions that the keynote speakers at the conference will be addressing. Participants are welcome to present on their own disciplinary research, but we encourage all participants to reflect on the issues that the conference seeks to address and to include their reflections in their papers and presentations.

Conference organisation partners: Monash University - Australia, Thai Nguyen University - Vietnam, The University of Hawaii at Manoa - USA, and University of Social Sciences and Humanities - Vietnam National University Hanoi
