The international academic conference ‘Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc & Vietnamese Liberal Arts Education Model’ aims to shed light on scholarly research and bring together different perspectives on one of the most important milestones in Vietnamese educational history, and the efforts to reconstruct an educational reform prohibited by the colonial government from late 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century. The conference will open up academic dialogues on the cultural exposure at that point in history, the ideologies and philosophies, and the influence and achievements of Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc. Over the discourses, the conference hopes to dive deep into the essence of liberal tradition in Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc, to learn from it and find out important implications that can help build capacity for the present Vietnamese educational system in the local, regional and global contexts.
Fulbright University Vietnam is looking forward to welcoming you at the conference. For further inquiries, please contact the organizing committee via email Hoithaodknt@fulbright.edu.vn
