Jing Wang
Visiting Assistant Professor


Rutgers University, PhD


Jing Wang is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication at Tulane. Jing is interested in political economy of communication, science and technology studies (STS), and global financial capitalism. She studies how the corporate and political actors use digital media and financial technologies (or so-called fin-techs) to reshape the users’ everyday money-related practices, such as online shopping, digital loans and investment, and gift-exchanges, and how the aggregation of these digital practices reconfigures the structure and power relations in the global financial economy. Jing has been invited to give research talks at NYU, UC, Irvine, and UPenn.
