Dr. Uffe Bergeton wins Hettleman Prize

August 30, 2019

Dr. Uffe Bergeton, an associate professor in the Chinese program of the Department of Asian Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill, has been awarded UNC’s prestigious Phillip and Ruth Hettleman Prize for Scholarly and Artistic Achievement by Young Faculty.

Dr. Bergeton’s research is centered on early China, with a focus on pre-Qin society, thought, and linguistic theories, and was called “innovative and groundbreaking” by the selection committee for the Hettleman Prize. The Hettleman Prize was established in 1986 with the intent of recognizing the dedicated efforts of exemplary junior tenure-track or recently tenured faculty, and merits a $5,000 cash stipend.

Congratulations, Dr. Bergeton!
