Assistant Professor Hong Vu ’s article titled Activists’ Strategic Communication in an Authoritarian Setting: Integrating Social Movement Framing into Issues Management” has been accepted to the International Journal of Strategic Communication. Vu co-authored this work with Hue Duong from University of Georgia and Nhung Nguyen . The article analyzes qualitative data from 18 interviews with activists about their use of social media to mobilize and coordinate a successful social movement in Vietnam, an authoritarian country where public opposition against the government is prohibited.
Vu also had a chapter recently accepted for publication in Louisa Ha ’s and Chin-Chung Chao ’s edited book: Asian Women Leadership: A Cross-National and Cross-Sector Comparison,” to be published by Routledge. The chapter, which is titled Female Leadership in Vietnam: Traditional Gender Norm, Quota and the Media,” reviews the history of Vietnam’s female leadership and feminism and its current policy in encouraging women to participate in policymaking. Vu also analyzes the news to find that the news media coverage of female and male leadership continues to reinforce the double-burden norm, contributing to shaping the public’s biased perception of female leadership.
