Project Title: 
Yang- The Development of Implicit Emotion Knowledge among Chinese School-aged Children
Project Abstract: 
I would like to apply for the International Travel Grant, which will support me to collect data in China in summer 2016 to enlarge the age range of the researched population in my dissertation. My dissertation project aims to examine children's ability to understand emotions from speech. I will focus on the children in rural and urban China. Specifically, we examine children's ability to seek emotional information from word meanings and nonverbal vocal tones. The results will help us understand children's emotional development and help children better adjust to the modern life.
