Anthropologist Joe Carrier on Vietnam's Central Highlanders

In connection with a new exbibit on Vietnam's Central Highlanders opening at UCI's Langson Library, on the next Subversity show (May 14, 2007 at 9 a.m.) on KUCI, we talk with anthropologist Joe Carrier, whose photos taken during the Vietnam War and more recently form a major part of the exhibit, "Surviving War, Surviving Peace: The Central Highlanders of Vietnam."

We talk with Carrier about why he took the photos of the Central Highlanders, their plight during various wars and and more recently, the role of various regimes, and the responsibilities of an anthropologist in documenting people in cultures different from one's own.

A reception and panel discussion in connection with the exhibit will take place Tuesday 15 May at 5:30 p.m. at UCI's Langson Library. For more information, see: .
