Call for papers for the issue n°52 of the journal _EchoG_eo entitled « HO CHI MINH CITY, A METROPOLITAN
PLAYING FIELD »: https://journals.openedition.org/echogeo/16470
This issue will document the recent resurge of research projects on contemporary Vietnam’s largest metropolis, Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon) and its 10 million inhabitants. Our subtitle, “metropolitan playing field”, can be understood in two ways: as a reference to the new interactions between diverse players provoked by the metropolization of Ho Chi Minh City; but also as an allusion to the late 90s’ boom in researchers’ interest in Vietnam, after decades of war and relative lockdown. Ho Chi Minh City offers an opportunity to question the specificities of metropolitan production – as well as that of academic production – in an authoritarian context.
