Yiming Wang is a PhD candidate at the Department of Society Studies, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Maastricht University, since October 2021.
Her PhD project focuses on queer fan-fictions and internet censorship. In her research, Yiming studies contemporary queer fandom, especially Boys' Love (BL) fanfiction that engages with global fan activities. Based on the analysis of fandom, she focuses on developing a conceptualized construct to interpret the nature of globalized fan activities in terms of fan-fictions under internet shutdowns.
Yiming holds her bachelor's degree in Cultural Studies (The Chinese University of Hong Kong), and an MPhil degree in Gender Studies and Cultural Studies (The Chinese University of Hong Kong).
