Ying Wang

Professor Ying Wang is Assistant Professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures at Pace University (NYC). She received her Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University in 2011. Her research focuses on women's writings in nineteenth-century France, with an emphasis on representations of “deviance” in politically and socially constructed categories such as gender, race, class and disability. Her reading of women's literature combines sociocultural reflection and textual analysis. Through the lens of gender, she examines women writers' creation conditions and writing strategies, which imply a transgression of gender constraints in a patriarchal society. Her essays have appeared in Nineteen-Century French Studies, French Forum, and Women in French. In addition to literary studies, she is also a translator who has translated a variety of literary texts from French/English to Chinese. Her book translation from French to Chinese of Martine Reid’s critical biography of George Sand was published in 2018 (CTPH, Beijing).
