Dr. Yijing Wang is assistant professor of visual art in the School of Communication and the Arts at Gannon University. He earned his Ph.D. in art history from the University of Pittsburgh. His research focuses on the conceptual and material dimensions of artists’ physical acts of inscribing in transcultural representations between East Asia, Europe, and the United States since the 1980s. Rooted in precise visual, material, and textual analysis, his work draws broadly from the methods of art history, literary studies, ethnolinguistics, and theories of globalization to propose an innovative model for the study of global contemporary art. Dr. Wang’s commitment to historically marginalized art history has, in turn, profoundly shaped his perspective on teaching. As an instructor, he seeks to cultivate students’ skills of empathy, criticality, and expression through hands-on learning and community-based pedagogy.
