The refugee legacy for second generation Vietnamese in Australia

This project aims to explore the refugee legacy for second generation Vietnamese in Australia. The first Vietnamese refugees arrived 41 years ago in the wake of the Vietnam War. This project will examine identity formation, secondary trauma, and linguistic and cultural interactions in the aftermath of war and the refugee experience, and analyse the achievements and challenges of this group. The expected outcomes are a major study of Vietnamese in Australia and a national oral history collection.
