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.
