Wen Yu's research focuses on China’s political thought, ideological movements, and intellectual culture from seventeenth century to the present. Her dissertation, "The Search for a Chinese Way in the Modern World: From the Rise of Evidential Learning to the Birth of Chinese Cultural Identity,” explores the roots and development of modern Chinese exceptionalism by tracing how the search for a Chinese cultural identity has become central to the intellectual debates over the political system and moral values in modern China.  Wen Yu received her PhD from Harvard in 2018.
