Andrew Hardy

Historian of Vietnam, Andrew Hardy is head of the EFEO's centre in Hanoi. 

After his BA in history at the University of Cambridge (1987), his interest in the history of Vietnam led him to pursue his studies at the Université de Paris 7, where he wrote MA (1991) and DEA (1993) dissertations under the supervision of Daniel Hémery. His PhD on Vietnamese migration was supervised by David Marr at the Australian National University. His doctoral thesis (1999), published under the title Red Hills (2003), focused on the relationship between migrants and the State in Vietnamese lowland-upland migration.

During his stay at the National University of Singapore, as post-doctoral fellow and assistant professor (1999-2002), he became interested in twentieth-century relations between Viet migrants from the plains and ethnic minorities in the highlands. 

After joining the EFEO in 2002, his research looked at the history of the Vietnamese southward expansion and Vietnam-Champa relations. Since 2005, this focus has led him to study the Long Wall of Quang Ngai, a monument measuring 127 km (designated Vietnamese national heritage in 2011). Of relatively recent construction (1819), the wall allows multi-disciplinary research on relations between the Viet and the Hrê ethnic minority during the eighteenth to twentieth centuries and Vietnam-Champa relations during the preceding centuries. The project is a cooperation between the Vietnam Institute of Archaeology (Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences) with the participation of a team of European and Vietnamese researchers and students.
