This paper is, in a way, a focus on Vietnamese American negotiation within an amalgamated identity and the way in which the construction and reconstruction of representation enables them to establish their own place in American society. Incorporated into this argument is the recognition that socially constructed ideologies resonate across not only geographical lines, but across cultural boundaries as well forcing the reader's perspective to extend beyond an analysis constricted by nationalistic borders. To address this topic, I have chosen to concentrate on two specific sites of cultural production and reproduction.
Vietnamese America, cultural identity, Vietnam War
