ItemIndochina to Vietnam: A (re-telling) search for identity through narratives(2020-02) Nguyen, UyenFrom that moment onwards, a question lingers in my mind as I slowly mature: whose narratives are we talking about when we look at History? During the course of my academic studies, this personal question (unbeknownst to me) has become the driving force behind my research papers, my interests and eventually to this collection. These narratives that I have chosen for this collection are often hidden by History (with the capital H) as they represent the untold, unseen and untouched part of a large and abstract concept. I build this collection with the desire that these authors can help me discover the identity of the land that nurtured my childhood and pivoted me into the person I am today. ItemLosing, Finding, and Returning Home: Sense of Belonging(2022-03) Nguyen, UyenThis collection was ironically built without the intention that it would become a collection. Similar to many other projects I have done, it always begins with a curiosity. The puzzles slowly move into places that allow me a great amount of self-reflection and discovery of my personal values. Most of the books in this collection can be found in our library at Goucher since I didn’t really have the luxury of going to a bookstore during a pandemic. However, the lack of intentionality in this collection makes it difficult to put them in thematic categories. Initially, I decided not to categorize them at all but as I reread some of the works for this reflection, I decided they do belong to three groups - personal (individual), familial (community) and national (nation). What is interesting, for me, is that any book in this collection can move fluidly between those three categories because home is all-encompassing of individual, familial and national identity. Those three themes, with their link to belonging, become the connecting thread for the works in this collection. ItemNous Avons Choisi de Nous Souvenir : œuvres d’Architecture Coloniales Indochinoises au Vietnam comme Vecteurs de Mémoire(2022-05) Nguyen, Uyen; Ingram, Mark; Sheller, Tina; French Transnational Studies & Visual Material Culture; Bachelor's DegreeSimilar to other colonial projects, the Statue of Liberty was one of the many examples of the way the French empire wanted to exercise its power through the modification of the landscape in the colony - Indochinese Vietnam. The spatial edification and the enhancement of the built environment were the attempts of the imperial government to imitate French cities. For these reasons, there still exist numerous buildings in modern Vietnam that reflect different aspects of French aesthetics. They become lieux de mémoire because they carry the history and the collective memory of the inhabitants in the colony and also of the Vietnamese citizens today. This paper will examine the Indochinese colonial architectural works as vectors of memory.
