Congratulations to Sociology Ph.D. Student Emily Truong-Cheung for winning the 2020 UBC Killiam Graduate Teaching Assistant Award. This recognition is presented each year to a small number of graduate students who have made outstanding contributions to teaching and learning at UBC.
Originally completing her BA at UBC in Sociology (Honours), then completing her MA in Sociology at U of T, Truong-Cheung is currently studying the Chinese government’s move to reduce meat consumption in China by 50% and how this impacts individual’s attitude on food, culture, social class, and consumption. Some of Emily’s research interests include: the relationship between culture and food consumption, social class inequality within higher education, immigration, and globalization.
