  • Yuanchong Wang, Associate Professor in the History Department at the University of Delaware

    Associate Professor
    University of Delaware
    211 John Munroe Hall
    Newark, DE 19716
    TR 2:30-4:30


    Yuanchong Wang specializes in late imperial and modern Chinese and East Asian history.  He joined the Department of History at the University of Delaware in fall 2014 after he received his Ph.D. from Cornell University. He received his M.A. from Peking University in 2006 and B.A. from Shandong University in 2002.

    His first book, Remaking the Chinese Empire: Manchu-Korean Relations, 1616–1911, was published by Cornell University Press in 2018. This book examines China’s development from an empire into a modern state through the lens of Sino-Korean political relations during the Qing period. Incorporating the Chosŏn Dynasty of Korea (1392–1910) into the historical narrative of the Chinese empire under the Qing Dynasty of China (1636/1644–1911), the book demonstrates that the Manchu regime used its relations with Chosŏn Korea to establish, legitimize, and consolidate its identity as the civilized center of the world, as a cosmopolitan empire, and as a modern sovereign state. 

    Wang’s current research project examines the frontier policy and state building of late imperial and modern China.
