It’s a new year, and we’re getting ready here at Le Minh Khai’s SEAsian History Blog to live life in this new year to its fullest.

After seven years, Le Minh Khai has finally revealed his true identity on the About page.

And after seven years, Le Minh Khai has decided that it’s finally time to take on the extremely important topic of the influence of the Nhân văn – Giai phẩm Affair on historical scholarship in North (and later, unified) Vietnam through text and video.


And that means that in 2017 Le Minh Khai and Natasha/Michelle will continue to “interrogate/investigate Đào Duy Anh” and try to figure out why understanding that man’s life/scholarship is key to understanding the field of historical research in Vietnam today.

Welcome to the year of the rooster, and thanks for reading (and viewing)!!
