Program Description:

ATS3208: In the footsteps of refugees

This intensive unit will examine one of the largest and most visible refugee movements of the late twentieth century, in which more than two million Vietnamese left their homeland in the two decades following the end of the Vietnam War in 1975.
It will include a field trip to Vietnam and Indonesia, and explore the site of the former refugee camp of Pulau Galang in Indonesia. Galang is a site of pilgrimage for survivors and the only former refugee camp to have been preserved.
A series of lectures and seminars will introduce students to the experiences of Vietnamese refugees, and students will be able to reflect on the refugees’ journeys, their resettlement experiences in Australia, and the nature of remembrance.
