A Fulbright Scholar and chairman of the International Economics and Trade Department at Nankai University in Tianjin, China, will give a presentation Thursday at Oklahoma City University about U.S./China economic relations. The presentation is free to the public and will begin at 7 p.m. in the Kerr-McGee Auditorium in Meinders School of Business at N.W. 27th Street and McKinley Avenue.
Shen Zhou is an expert in international economics and trade policy. Along with his position at Nankai University, he is currently serving as a Fulbright Research Scholar in the Department of Economics at Duke University.
He has written four books and published several articles in academic journals all over the world. His honors include the An Zijie Award for International Trade Research — the highest award for that field of research in China — and the President’s Award from the Chinese Academic Association of World Economy.
Zhou earned his MBA from OCU in 1995 and his doctorate in economics from Nankai University in 2002.
The presentation is funded through the Fulbright Outreach Lecturing Fund. The fund allows Fulbright Visiting Scholars who are currently in the United States to share with other universities their specific research interests; speak on the history and culture of their home country; exchange ideas with U.S. students, faculty and community organizations; become better acquainted with U.S. higher education; and create linkages between their home and host institutions. Each year some 800 faculty and professionals from around the world receive Fulbright Scholar grants for advanced research and university lecturing.
