The World History Association, in association with the University of
Social Sciences and Humanities, Hanoi, the Vietnam History Association, and Hawaii Pacific University, has issued a Call or Papers for a Symposium on Vietnam in World History.

Submissions are welcome which pursue interdisciplinary, local-to
global,comparative, or international approaches so as to provide an
opportunity for dialogue among world historians and scholars of
Vietnamese Studies.

Papers are particularly welcome which demonstrate Vietnams place in
world historical processes or how our understanding of these processes
must be modified in the light of the unique or special aspects of
Vietnamese society.

These processes include aspects of cross cultural entanglements (such
as hybridization, indigenization, localization, and syncretism); the
decline and fall of empires; issues of gender; local agency; the
colonial experience; nationalism; diasporas; warfare, con?ict and
post-conflict studies; trade; economy; language, religion, culture;
art; national and regional questions in global perspective such as
borderlands; diplomatic relations; investment, tourism; resource
management issues; the environment; sustainability, and models for
world history and global studies in terms of methodology, scholarship
and instruction.

Submissions already received address such subjects as Colonialism and
Confucianism Schools in Vietnam; Vietnamese urbanization in comparative
perspective; Chinese principalities on the borderlands of Southeast
Asia (including Ha Tien, Hoi An), the Religion of Champa in global
perspective, Champa temple conservation issues, DRV programs promoting
modernization and de-colonization in the early Cold War era;
Reorganizing medical institutions (the modernization of Vietnamese
medicine), Civilization and mobilization in PAVN during the American
War in Vietnam; official and unofficial diplomacy in the Second World
War, Role of women in development; Trade routes from the lower Mekong
to the Southern Seas, Tonkinese labor in the New Hebrides, Mien
Trung and World History and the role of South Asia in the First
Indochina War.

These topics are general and examples only and should not be taken to
exclude more detailed subjects. Scholars from all disciplines are
encouraged to submit proposals. Any questions about paper suitability
should be directed to the program chair at mgilbert@hpu.edu.

Proposals for entire organized panels should include the panel title
and overall panel abstract, organizers name and contact information,
followed by each panelists individual paper title, and contact
information. Participants should be listed in the order they will
present. Also, please clearly list chair information (if any). The
program committee can help ?nd a panel chair, if necessary. Individual
panelists should then proceed to submit their individual papers to
this panel and indicate that it is part of this panel where indicated.

Submit entire panels via the World History Association website link
for organized panel submissions:

Individual paper proposals must include an abstract, no more than a
250 word summary with the title of the paper, your name, your
institutional affiliation, email address, phone number, and brief
curriculum vitae, all submitted to the WHA website link for individual
paper submissions: http://thewha.org/abstract-submission/hanoi/individual.php.

There is a limited number of AV-equipped rooms available so it is
essential that you indicate your need for audiovisual equipment (and
what kind) in your proposal. All meeting rooms are air conditioned.

All panelists who will attend the conference, whether as organizer,
chair/moderator, discussant, or presenter, must register to be on the
program by October 15th, 2013.

Because of the International Dateline, attendees may be able to make
connections permitting participation at the American Historical
Association meeting in Chicago later that week.

At the request of the conference hosts, the Vietnam National
University - Hanoi, University of Social Sciences and Humanities
and the Vietnam History Association, a workshop for Vietnamese
teachers on world history will be held immediately prior to the
symposium. Those interested in supporting/participating in the
workshop should email: thewha@hawaii.edu.

Pre/post and concurrent symposium activities will be structured so as
to permit tours of local sites and beyond which connect Vietnam to the
wider region and the world, including Hue and possibly Hui An.

Registration fees (including those for attendee guests),
accommodations, travel options, and tours will appear at
