Reminder: Socheata Poeuv Lecture and Film this Thursday

Filmmaker and activist Socheata Poeuv will be speaking this Thursday about her film, New Year Baby, and her work to preserve the histories of the survivors of the Cambodian genocide.  The film will be shown at 6:00pm in the Helen DeVitt Jones Auditorium of the Museum of Texas Tech.  The lecture and Q&A session will follow at 7:30.  Admission is free and open to the public.

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.  This event is co-sponsored by the Museum of Texas Tech.  For more information on the 2013 VNCA Guest Lecture Series see http://www.vietnam.ttu.edu/GLS.
