How do people experience social and emotional relationships in view of large-scale economic, societal, and moral transformations and in view of different forms of social/spatial mobility? How do people, in these contexts, cope with, and make new sense of, the limits of relatedness, and especially of love and care, which are considered paramount to the nurturing of social and emotional relationships? And how do these dynamics unfold on local, global, and transnational levels? This course takes a choice of ethnographically and theoretically grounded works on contemporary Vietnam and entangled diasporic worlds outside of Vietnam to contemplate these questions from a social and psychological anthropological perspective.
