    Brief Biography

    Aloha,

    I am Phan Le Ha (also known/written as Phan Le-Ha, Ha Phan, Ha Le Phan, Le Ha Phan, and Le-Ha Phan), a Full Professor in the Department of Educational Foundations, College of Education, the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Prior to this appointment, I was with the Faculty of Education, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. I have also held adjunct and honorary positions at universities in Australia, Vietnam, and the UK.

    At the University of Hawaii at Manoa I am also the Special Assistant to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs in leading the University's engagement with Southeast Asia.

    Series Co-Editor, New Perspectives in Language and Education, Multilingual Matters Publishing House, UK
    Editor, Teaching Issues Section - TESOL Quarterly
    Editorial Board Member: Journal of Language and Education; Inter-Asia Cultural Studies ; Journal of Vietnamese Studies; Journal of Language, Identity and Education; Transitions: Journal of Transient Migration

    I have been doing much research on international higher education, academic mobility, identity-language-pedagogy-culture studies, globalization and internationalization of education and knowledge production, and TESOL in a variety of regions, with a particular focus on Australia, Southeast Asia, East Asia, and the Middle East. With my recent shift to Hawaii, I am developing projects to examine issues surrounding global and international engagement and new initiatives in education in North America and the Pacific region at all levels.

    Founder of Engaging with Vietnam: http://www.engagingwithvietnam.net; www.engagingwithvietnam.org

    One highlight of my work is the Engaging with Vietnam Initiative, which I have been developing since 2009. This Initiative has brought together scholars, researchers, policy makers, diplomatic officials and the general public to collaboratively and critically engage with knowledge production and scholarship building related to Vietnam and beyond. Annual scholarly conferences are a major part of the Initiative.

    I have been advising many students' research projects on a wide range of topics related to my expertise.

    Mahalo and Aloha,
    Phan Le Ha/Phan Le-Ha
