Liam Kelley

Liam C. Kelley is an Associate Professor of Southeast Asian Studies in the Institute of Asian Studies at Universiti Brunei Darussalam. His background is in premodern Vietnamese history, but he is particularly interested in how the premodern Vietnamese past has been reinterpreted and re-purposed since the early twentieth century. Beyond Vietnam, Professor Kelley teaches numerous courses on modern Southeast Asian history. Professor Kelley is also very interested in the ways in which the Digital Revolution is transforming how scholars can produce and disseminate their ideas and has been at the forefront of the effort to employ new digital media for academic purposes. Finally, together with Professor Phan Le Ha in the Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Institute of Education (SHBIE), Professor Kelley organizes an annual conference called ‘Engaging With Vietnam: An Interdisciplinary Dialogue’.
