Secrets from 17th Century Vietnam

Episode 4,   Jan 02, 2020, 11:33 PM

We like to imagine that our understanding of the past is well rounded.
But history has secrets and, too often, we’ve settled for incomplete stories.
Mostly, we know tales that are loud, bold, and dominant. 
They dictate what stories are told... and what is left to be forgotten.

Today, Professor Kevin Lewis O’Neill sits down with Professor Nhung Tran to look at the lives of Vietnamese Catholics in the seventeenth century. They discuss how taking a closer look and reading between the lines can unlock the secrets that the dead leave behind and shift the narrative of our past.
