The Impact of Culture, Ethnicity, Race and Religion in the Vietnam War

March 23-24, 2007

The Vietnam War became all the more challenging as nations with very different cultures interacted with one another in Southeast Asia. Contributing to the complexity of the situation were cultural clashes that also emerged within each participating country and within the respective government, military, and civilian organizations involved. Appreciating the multifaceted interplay of the different cultures involved is essential to understanding the Vietnam War and its aftermath. It is the hope of the Vietnam Center that our 2007 annual conference will help foster a thorough and provocative examination of this important topic. The 2007 conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Park Plaza in Lubbock (the same hotel as the 2006 conference), on Friday and Saturday, 23-24 March.
