PhD student Yue Zhang receives ASA Award

In August, PhD student Yue Zhang received the Keith Roberts Teaching Innovations Award from the American Sociological Association’s Section on Teaching and Learning in recognition of developing an interdisciplinary course entitled 'Society, Bodies, and Health.' The award is “designed to support the next generation of sociology scholars and teachers who are committed to teaching and learning sociology” and is sponsored by Sage and numerous Sage authors.

"These many honors from our field’s primary professional organization highlight the quality and stature of our department and our Ph.D. program," Pridemore said. "I am especially delighted to see the well-deserved recognition...and all our outstanding Ph.D. students are already making important research and teaching contributions to the field of sociology and we are proud of their work."
