ES Grad David Pham in American Literary Journal


November 1, 2023

Congratulations to Ethnic Studies Graduate Student David Pham whose essay,
“Touching Ash in Vietnamese Diasporic Aesthetics,” was just published in American Literary Journal. His essay intervenes in critical interpretations of Vietnamese iconography to consider how fire and ash might serve as powerful ways to reimagine diasporic Vietnamese identity. 

A gorgeous image from his essay by the filmmaker Tuan Andrew Nguyen graces the cover. Read David’s essay here! Congratulations David on this significant accomplishment!
