2011 Guest Lecture Series Continues with Dr. Kara Dixon Vuic

The Vietnam Center and Archive is proud to present the third speaker in our 2011 Guest Lecture Series, Dr. Kara Dixon Vuic, on October 13th in the Lanier Auditorium of the Texas Tech Law School.  The lecture is free and open to the public.

Dr. Vuic teaches history at Bridgewater College in Virginia.  She has published articles in Signs and Nursing History Reviewon the army’s changing marriage and motherhood regulations and on the recruitment of nurses for the Vietnam War.  Dr. Vuic’s research led her to publish a book titled Officer, Nurse, Woman:  The Army Nurse Corps in the Vietnam War (The Johns Hopkins University Press, 2009).  Many of the oral history interviews Dr. Vuic conducted for her book are available online through the Virtual Vietnam Archive, and can be found using the link below.

An invitation-only reception with Dr. Vuic for the Friends of the Vietnam Center will be held from 6:00-6:45pm in the Formby Room of the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library on the day of the lecture.

The mission of the Vietnam Center and Archive Guest Lecture Series is to enrich the intellectual and cultural life of students, faculty, and the community at large by bringing distinguished individuals to campus for presentations on specific aspects of the Vietnam War, its lasting impact on American politics, society and culture, and on contemporary issues in Southeast Asia.

This lecture series is funded in part by a generous grant from the Helen Jones Foundation.  For more information on the 2011 VNCA Guest Lecture Series see http://www.vietnam.ttu.edu/GLS.
