Launched in 2011, the Vietnamese American Oral History Project (VAOHP), housed in the Department of Asian American Studies in the School of Humanities at UC Irvine, assembles, preserves, digitizes, and disseminates the life stories of Vietnamese Americans in Southern California. The project contributes to the expanding archives on Vietnamese Americans with the urgent goal of capturing first generation stories while this group remains. VAOHP is headed by Dr. Linda T. Vo, Director, with Tram Le, Associate Director. VAOHP collaborates closely with community volunteers, students, and the Southeast Asian Archive at UC Irvine Libraries, where the oral histories are preserved. The official website archiving the oral histories of Vietnamese Americans can be accessed by clicking the photo above.
