The 27th Annual Mortenson Distinguished Lecture presents “Enduring Wars in Transpacific Memories” by Viet Thanh Nguyen, scholar and author of Pulitzer Prize Winner, The Sympathizer. Nguyen’s work engages dialogue on what it means to be national, ethnic, multicultural, foreign, international, diaspora, and transnational. The Lecture will explore the conflicts and trauma brought about by war, forced migration, and the subsequent resettlement and integration of refugees in a new homeland and the memories that ensue.
