|Dr. WANG Liping 王利平
Dr Wang earned her PhD degree in Sociology from the University of Chicago. Her dissertation, ‘Ethnicizing the Frontier: Imperial Transformation and Ethnic Confrontations in China-Inner Mongolia, 1890s-1930s’, was completed in 2013. She is now turning this into a book manuscript. The volume examines forms and causes of Mongol-Han confrontation in Inner Mongolia during the Chinese imperial transition, and questions general theories of empire to nation transition in an historical examination of the Chinese case. Her alternative approach focuses on the maintenance and dissolution of the relations that sustained crosscutting identities on the frontier.
In addition, Wang has also been working on transnational movement of knowledge in modern academic disciplines, the indigenization of that knowledge, and the creation of a knowledge regime dealing with ethnicity in Republican China (1912-1949).
She is now embarking on a project that compares patterns of luxury trade binding various frontiers to the Chinese imperial center in the 17th century. Her future research includes a comparative study of how elites mediated minority politics under the Qing and how they do so in contemporary China. These studies uncover path dependence that links contemporary Chinese society to its imperial legacies and the dramatic transformations it underwent throughout the long 20th century.
Her research has been published in The American Journal of Sociology, Comparative Studies in Society and History, and The Annals: The American Academy of Political and Social Sciences.
Before joining the University of Hong Kong, she was Harper-Schmidt Fellow in the Society of Fellows at the University of Chicago. She was visiting assistant professor at Haverford College in 2013-2014.
