Research Initiative:

VanLandingham will explore the sources and limits of resilience within the Vietnamese American community in New Orleans, with a focus on the community’s recovery during the post-Katrina era. He will investigate several factors, including a shared history of overcoming adversity, strong religious institutions, and effective leadership that may have led to a wide range of positive outcomes.
