Asian Studies Seminar : Charting Vietnamese mobility from Vietnamese to New Caledonia to Australia Other events...
Since the mid-1980s, historians have recognised that the close geographic proximity between Australia (a British colony) and New Caledonia (a French colony) has seen a proximity in the methods of settler colonisation of both sites. They have, however, paid less attention to the connections of these places to Vietnam, not least made through the transportation of Vietnamese indentured labourers, or Chan Dang, to New Caledonia from the 1890s to the 1930s. This paper brings a triad of polities into the one frame Vietnam, Australia and New Caledonia connected in the first instance by the South China and Coral Seas and in the second by British and French colonial regimes. It charts some of the surprising historical mobilities of Vietnamese people through this geography, and in doing so considers the ties and tensions between these colonial regimes.
