We are pleased to announce the launch of a new book series – Global Vietnam, published by Springer Nature.

As far as we know, this is the first and only book series in the world with a major international publisher to focus solely on Vietnam.

This book series has emerged from, and is affiliated with, the annual academic conference series, Engaging With Vietnam: An Interdisciplinary Dialogue (EWV). In the years ahead, some of the publications in this series will undoubtedly be developed from papers presented at future EWV conferences.

At the same time, however, this book series is fully open to scholars from around the world and welcomes the submission of manuscripts and book proposals, both authored and edited, on any topic in the Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Education and Interdisciplinary Studies about Vietnam in global contexts and/or global Vietnam, however one wishes to conceptualize those topics.

Finally, we are honored to have received the support of many leading scholars who have agreed to serve as Associate Series Editors and Editorial Board Members for this book series.

We are therefore very excited about this new initiative, and look forward to the engaging scholarship that it will publish.

Aim and Scope

Global Vietnam is committed to advancing scholarship on Vietnam and Vietnam-related issues and to nurturing a new generation of Vietnam scholars in the Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Education and Interdisciplinary Studies.

Its goal is to engage with Vietnam in global contexts and with global Vietnam across time, space and communities.

It will feature new writings and understandings that reflect nuances, complexities and dynamics that Vietnam in all of its possible meanings and constructs has inspired, generated and stimulated.

It recognizes that there is an ever expanding circle of Vietnam scholars around the world whose scholarship can be seen as the product of a new era when knowledge production has become increasingly globalized and decentralized.
