Jane Le Skaife is the 2012-2013 recipient of the Southeast Asian Archive Anne Frank Visiting Researcher Award

The Southeast Asian Archive is a unit of the Department of Special Collections and Archives in the University of California, Irvine Libraries. It was established in 1987 to document the experiences of refugees and immigrants from Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam (the countries of the former Indochina) who resettled in the United States after the end of the Vietnam War in 1975. The archive collects materials relating to the resettlement of these refugees in the United States (and to a lesser extent, worldwide), the development and growth of Southeast Asian American communities, and the culture and history of Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. The archive's collection is the strongest of its kind in the U.S. Jane Le Skaife is the 2012-2013 recipient of the Southeast Asian Archive Anne Frank Visiting Researcher Award, named after the founding librarian of the archive and made possible by an anonymous donor. http://seaa.lib.uci.edu/seaa-research-award.html
