Nguyen wins grant to study monk symbolic of Vietnam War era

In June 1963, in Saigon, Buddhist monk Thich Quang Duc set himself on fire to protest the government’s discrimination against the nation’s Buddhist majority. This horrific act launched a series of events resulting in the fall of the Ngo Dinh Diem regime, and Thich Quang Duc’s self-immolation came to symbolize America’s unpopular involvement in Vietnam.
Trian Nguyen, who teaches art and Asian studies at Bates, has received a fellowship for his research into this iconic figure.
