Dr. Andrew Hardy


After his BA in history at Peterhouse College, University of Cambridge (1987), Andrew Hardy’s interest in Vietnam’s history 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. To deepen his knowledge of the history of migration in twentieth-century Vietnam, he enrolled on a PhD programme under the supervision of David Marr at the Australian National University, where his doctoral work focused on the relationship between migrants and the state in Vietnamese lowland-upland migration. His PhD thesis (1999) was published under the title Red Hills in 2003.

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. He then reoriented his research towards 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 province, a monument measuring 127.4 km (designated Vietnamese national heritage in March 2011). Of relatively recent construction (1819), the wall opens up new avenues for multi-disciplinary research on relations between the Viet and the Hrê ethnic minority during the eighteenth to twentieth centuries as well as 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.

Associate Professor at the EFEO since 2002, Andrew Hardy is head of the EFEO’s centre in Hanoi.
