This talk will chronicle the intellectual history of 20th-century Vietnam as told through the biography of Đào Duy Anh, arguably the most important Vietnamese scholar of the modern period.

Haydon Cherry is a historian of modern Southeast Asia, particularly modern Vietnam. His first book, Down and Out in Saigon: Stories of the Poor in a Colonial City, 1900-1940, will be published by Yale University Press. At Northwestern University, Cherry teaches courses on the history of Southeast Asia as well as modern global history.

This is part of the Buffett Institute Faculty & Fellows Colloquium. On Fridays during the school year, the Buffett Institute hosts Northwestern faculty and/or visiting fellows to present their current research. This forum brings together an interdisciplinary audience to build awareness of global research on campus. The series helps promote dialogue on scholarship and develop a deeper sense of community among Buffett Institute affiliates. Each meeting lasts one hour; lunch is provided. Please arrive early to get lunch and find a seat.
