Guest Speaker: Dr. Vinh Nguyen, 2017 recipient of the John Charles Polanyi Prize in Literature.
“Dr. Nguyen is interviewing recent refugees from Syria, Vietnamese who fled here after 1975, and survivors of the third major wave of Mennonite immigration to Canada during and after the Second World War. His aim in listening to their stories is to understand their shared experiences and to dispel myths that refugees tend to be apolitical and passive.” (https://uwaterloo.ca/arts/news/renisonarts-professor-vinh-nguyen-wins-polanyi-prize, November 2017).
