Dr. Wang's research interests lie in three closely connected areas: (1) identity-based conflicts, nationalism, and the politics of historical memory; (2) peace and conflict management in East Asia, with special focus on China’s rise and its impact on regional peace and security; (3) foreign-domestic linkage in Chinese politics and foreign relations.

This book received International Studies Association’s Yale H. Ferguson Award in 2013. It was heralded by a book review as “qualif[ying] as a landmark in the study of Chinese nationalism.” Its Japanese version was published in Japan in 2014. Dr. Wang’s new book, Memory Politics, Identity and Conflict: Historical Memory as a Variable (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018) aims to contribute to methodological discussions concerning the use of identity as a variable to explain political actions.
