Yuanfei Wang

Assistant Professor
245 Joseph Brown

Yuanfei Wang specializes in Chinese fiction, drama, and transnational aspects of late imperial Chinese history. She holds a Ph.D from the University of Pennsylvania (2013). She was an exchange scholar at Yale and an SSRC postdoctoral fellow for transregional research related to "Inter-Asian Contexts and Connections."

Her current book project, tentatively titled The Empire in Discord: Unofficial History, Vernacular Fiction, and the Problem of Imperial Identity in Late Ming China, examines how unofficial histories and vernacular fiction that flourished in late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries constructed new narratives of imperial identity to contest official discourse on cross-border warfare, outlaws, pirates, and foreign others.
