Profile

Yi-Wen Wang holds a PhD in Architecture from the University of Nottingham, UK, and specialises in 20th century heritage conservation and management. She joined the Department of Urban Planning and Design, XJTLU, in 2011 and is currently teaching postgraduate modules on heritage conservation, place making and urban design. Her research interests lie in the areas of urban conservation and heritage management, focusing on socio-cultural issues of heritage-led regeneration in both urban and rural contexts. She is particularly interested in the protection of unassuming historical structures and fabric, and much of her research work focuses on the conservation issues surrounding post-war housing heritage. Other parts of her research explore the relationship between the industrial heritage valorisation and creative industry development; the role of agricultural heritage in rural regeneration and its potential for promoting community-based tourism development; and the use of technologies for promoting cultural tourism and as a vehicle for public engagement and community empowerment.
