Lunchtime Lecture: Collecting Images: Building Community Archives and Documenting Stories of Refugees and Immigrants

Wednesday, February 6, 2019
12–1pm
Free with Museum admission (free to members)

Dr. Linda Trinh Vo, Dr. Thuy Vo Dang, and Tram Le will discuss Viet Stories: Vietnamese American Oral History Project, their online collaborative housed in UC Irvine’s Southeast Asian Archive. This community archive project collects, documents, and exhibits stories of refugees and immigrants, and reflects on the impact of war and trauma as well as the complexities of resettlement and resiliency. Their goal is to present new narratives on the diversity of America.

Lunchtime Lectures take place on the first Wednesday of the month at noon in the Charlotte Wendel Education Center. Visitors are welcome to bring food and beverages.
