A lively debate took place after the Harn Museum lecture. Andrea Pham, Associate Professor of Vietnamese Language and Linguistics, who also earlier gave a fascinating response to the lecture, responds to an interesting question from the floor.

The major artwork on the museum wall in the background is by, the much feted artist, Frank Stella. What a venue for a milonga!
