Hanway Lecture in Global Studies
Pulitzer Prize winner Viet Thanh Nguyen to give Hanway Lecture
Viet Thanh Nguyen, Ph.D., award-winning author, will deliver the 2020 Hanway Lecture in Global Studies virtually on Wednesday, October 7, 2020, at 6 p.m. via zoom.
The lecture titled, “An Evening with Viet Thanh Nguyen,” will discuss migration and focus on his New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Sympathizer and his short story collection The Refugees.
Nguyen’s debut novel, The Sympathizer, is a suspenseful, espionage story of love and betrayal. The book has also received the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and the Edgar Award for Best First Novel from the Mystery Writers of America, among others. Nguyen has published additional award-winning pieces including The Refugees and Nothing Ever Dies: Vietnam and the Memory of War. His latest work, Chicken of the Sea, is a children’s book—which his 6-year-old son, Ellison, collaborated with him on.
