Emma Teng awarded 2005 Levitan Prize

Emma TengThe 2005 Levitan Prize in the Humanities was awarded to Associate Professor of Chinese Studies Emma Teng in March 2005. Teng, who joined the MIT faculty in 1997, will use the prize to support her current book project, The Chinese Eurasian: East-West Interracialism at the Turn of the Century. The $25,000 Levitan prize was established through a gift from the late James A. Levitan, a 1945 MIT graduate in chemistry, a member of the MIT Corporation, and Of-Counsel at the law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom of New York City. First awarded in 1990, the Levitan Prize supports innovative and creative scholarship in the humanities by SHASS faculty members.
