Discussion





*Dynamics of Memory and Religious Nationalism in a Sino-Vietnamese Border
Town*

*Tam T. Ngo*

This paper analyses the dynamics of official and unofficial religious nationalism in the Vietnamese border town Lào Cai. In 1979 Lào Cai was one of many Vietnamese towns that were reduced to rubble during the short but bloody war between Vietnam and China. The normalization in Sino-Vietnamese relation in 1991 allowed a booming border trade that let Lào Cai prosper while the painful memory of this war continued to haunt the town and the daily experiences of its residents, both humans and gods. Since any official remembrance of the war is forbidden by the Vietnamese state, Lào Cai residents have found a religious way to deal with their war memories that skillfully evades state control. By analyzing narratives about the fate of the gods and goddesses that reign in the Father-God Temple and the Mother-Goddess Temple, two religious institutions located right next to the border, this paper shows that it is in the symbolism of the supernatural that one can find memories of the war and of the changing social landscape of Lào Cai and reconstruct its history.

She is the author of the monograph *The New Way: Protestantism and The Hmong in Vietnam* (University of Washington Press, 2016) and co-editor of *Atheist Secularism and Its Discontents: A Comparative Study of Religion and Communism in Eastern Europe and Asia *(Palgrave MacMillan, 2015)



*Lost in the Mountains*

*Peter van der Veer*

This paper engages the question of the relation between civilization, political formation, and mountain people in the Southeast Asian mainland massif. The argument I want to present is that the fragmentary nature of state formation in the area does not allow us to capture it in a model of state versus nonstate actors. Nevertheless, political formations and connections of trade take precedence over civilizational expansion.
However, the fragmentary nature of social life in the mountains makes the use of general models difficult.

*Prof. Peter van deer Veer* (b. 1953) is director of the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity in Göttingen. He has taught Anthropology at the Free University of Amsterdam, Utrecht University and the University of Pennsylvania. He received the Hendrik Muller Award for his social science study of religion.

He published a monograph on the comparative study of religion and nationalism in India and China, entitled The Modern Spirit of Asia. The Spiritual and the Secular in China and India (Princeton University Press, 2013) Among his other major publications are Gods on Earth (LSE Monographs, 1988), Religious Nationalism (University of California Press, 1994), and Imperial Encounters (Princeton University Press, 2001).
