Vietnam, Here I come!!!

Just a tiny, itty bitty post to share with you all that I’ll be in Vietnam for the next four weeks. It’ll be a combined visiting family/research trip to flesh out my last dissertation chapter, “Host: Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon,” which uses biopower and biopolitics as a lens to examine the cultural texts of the people that make up the informal hospitality industry in HCMC.

I’ll be spending the first few days on Hanoi before flying to HCMC. I haven’t spent any time in the North before, so it’ll be an experience. I’ll try to blog while abroad with all of my traveling misadventures, since those entries are probably more fun than my academic ones. Pictures to come! (This time I’m actually going to do it. I swear!)
