Years of Stay at HYI:

Phung Minh Hieu will complete a doctoral dissertation (in May 2017) on the relationship between the Vietnamese state and its environment in the fifteenth century. Initially trained in Classical Chinese and Nom scripts before turning to Southeast Asian history with a focus on premodern Vietnam, Phung is interested in expanding research to participate in three main fields of studies: environmental history, digital history with a focus on historical GIS, and comparative history with the aim of connecting Vietnamese history to histories of other East and Southeast Asian countries.
