A Book Talk: War, Genocide and Justice: Cambodian American Memory Work


War, Genocide and Justice In the three years, eight months, and twenty days of the Khmer Rouge’s deadly reign over Cambodia, an estimated 1.7 million Cambodians perished as a result of forced labor, execution, starvation, and disease. It is against this background of war, genocide, and denied justice that Cathy J. Schlund-Vials explores the work of 1.5-generation Cambodian American artists and writers. Cathy J. Schlund-Vials is associate professor of English and Asian American studies and director of the Asian American Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut.
