Michelle H. Wang specializes in art and archaeology of tenth century BCE to third century CE China, with an emphasis on early notational systems. Her research interests include artisanal practice, history of technology, excavated texts, and mortuary culture. Her current book project examines the extant corpus of early Chinese maps and their multifunctionality. Two other projects are underway: one on excavated covenants from the fifth century BCE and another on Han dynasty tomb murals. Michelle received her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley (2014).
