Doctoral student and Presidential Fellow Zoë Carney recently received word that her research essay, “Fragments of Racial Discourse in China: Understanding ‘Person of the Year’ and ‘ObaMao’ Images,” was accepted for presentation at the Southeast Conference of the Association of Asian Studies annual meeting. The conference will be held at Duke University in January 2014. Carney was also awarded a competitive travel grant by the association (only a handful were awarded).  Congratulations!
