COLLEGE-COMMUNITY COURSE (2019)

Team: Chen, Z., Young, A.

Title: (Working title) Perilous Journeys: Asian Refugee Experiences

Brief: This course introduces students to the histories of people of Asian ancestry in the United States from one particular angle – the Southeast Asian refugees. Most Americans know about the Vietnam War – mostly from the American side, but not many people understand what the war meant for the residents in Vietnam and Southeast Asia, and what happened to American allies in the war (most notably, the Montagnards and the Hmong) after the U.S. troops pulled out of this region. This is a story largely untold and ignored by mainstream histories. This topic is particularly pertinent to Guilford College given the fact that North Carolina is currently home of the largest concentration of Montagnards outside of Southeast Asia, and the College continually admits students from the local Southeast Asian refugee families. Guilford’s Bonner Center has a long history of partner relationship with the local Southeast Asian refugee communities.
