DENTON – Elaine Cho, a Texas Woman’s University Ph.D. student in rhetoric, is one of 17 educators in the nation selected for the 2010 Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad: History and Culture in China Program.

The National Committee on U.S.-China Relations organizes the program, which runs from the end of June through July and focuses on China’s history, culture, changing society and rapid economic growth. This summer, participants will visit Beijing, Xi'an, Hong Kong, Shanghai and another city to be decided.

“As an educator and a student, I consider it a privilege to be a part of this group and to have the opportunity to experience the rich culture and history of China first hand,” Ms. Cho said.

Ms. Cho of Garland is an English professor and the coordinator of the Asian-American/ Middle Eastern-American Studies Program for Eastfield College in the Dallas County Community College District. She will develop a curriculum project based on her China trip and will share this with her students at Eastfield College. She also plans to use the project as part of her TWU dissertation research.

Ms. Cho received both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English from TWU.

The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad: History and Culture in China Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education and has been administered by the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations since 1981. For more information, visit
