The McGill Project says
Dr. Guojun Wang specializes in late imperial Chinese literature. His research interests include Chinese vernacular literature with a focus on drama, book culture, materiality, and writing as a social practice. His current book project examines theatrical costuming in drama texts and performances in the 17th-century China when the Manchu rulers regulated hairstyle and dress based on ethnicity and gender. The book argues that theatrical costuming was a way to reassemble the disrupted body, clothes, and individual identities during the dynastic transition. Wang’s other research projects consider writings about ritual and chastity in late imperial China, and technology and newspaper in the modern era. Professor Wang teaches widely on Chinese literature. His courses explore such themes as self and society, gender and writing, and romance and violence.
