Ms Haipeng Zhou

Haipeng Zhou is a Ph.D. student of American Studies in the Institute of Liberal Arts at Emory University. Her research interest is intercultural studies, including representations of Asia in the US, the interconnection between Chinese and American culture, and American experience in China during the first half of the twentieth century, especially through long-term American sojourners in China. Haipeng Zhou’s interest in intercultural studies started from her undergraduate study at Beijing University of Science and Technology in China, where she majored in English. Her M.A. study in British and American Literature at Beijing Foreign Studies University further intensified this interest. For the subsequent three and a half years, she worked at Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press as an editor and copyright coordinator. This experience provided her opportunities to practice intercultural communications first hand. In order to acquire further training in intercultural studies, she then went to the US and started her Ph.D. study in the Department of Communications at Georgia State University. A year later, she transferred to Emory University’s American Studies program, where she remains today.
