About Me

I am Associate Professor of Chinese literature at Lingnan university in Hong Kong. I can be reached at yuanfeiwang@LN.edu.hk.

My first book Writing Pirates: Vernacular Fiction and Oceans in Late Ming China was published by the University of Michigan Press in 2021. Please read the book’s reviews and its grant and award history here.

My academic research interests include but are not limited to: the sea and the literature, pirates, early globalism and China’s literature, gender studies, material culture and literature, performance studies, and translation studies.

I am now working on three projects:

  • A Cambridge Element titled Early Globalism and China’s Literature. Click here to read more.
  • A monograph on oceans, translation, and literature in the Qing dynasty. Click here to read more.
  • A monograph on “hairpins” in late imperial Chinese literature. Click here to read more.

I have taught courses such as the History of Classical Chinese Literature (from very beginning to the Mid-Qing dynasty), Classical Chinese Novels, Myths and Literature, and Women’s Literature in Imperial China. To learn more about my teaching, click here.
