ASU's Zheng Receives Top American History Paper Honor

A member of the Angelo State University history faculty has received the award for Best Paper in American History from the Southwestern Social Science Association.

Dr. Guoqiang "Joe" Zheng, assistant professor of history at ASU, was presented the award for his paper on "The Invisible Hand: The United States and the Aftermath of the Tibetan Revolt 1959-1960."

Zheng presented the paper during the Southwestern Social Science Association's annual meeting March 15-18 in Fort Worth. The winning paper was selected from approximately 100 papers presented at the annual meeting.

The paper is part of a larger study in progress on China-U.S. relations from 1948-1960. Zheng will be continuing his research in China this summer, supported partially by an ASU faculty research enhancement grant.

Zheng joined the ASU faculty in 1999. He holds his Ph.D. from the University of Toledo and his master's and bachelor's degrees from Tianjin Normal University. He teaches American history, world and Asian history courses at ASU.
