Stanford announces second cohort of IDEAL Provostial Fellows

Yuhe Faye Wang is a PhD candidate in American Studies at Yale University. She holds an MPhil in American Studies from Yale University and a BA in Gender and Women’s Studies with a focus in Economics from Pomona College. She will join the Department of History.

Her work centers on the intersections of Asian American history, legal history, the history of the North American West and studies of racial capitalism in the 19th century. Her current project investigates how the civil rights of corporations in the United States were built upon the civil rights of Chinese immigrants, and how a series of Supreme Court decisions entangled constitutional protections against racial discrimination with corporate law in the decades immediately after the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment in 1868.
