About me

ww_photoWendy Siuyi Wong is a full professor in the Department of Design at York University, Toronto, Canada. She has established an international reputation as an expert in Chinese comic art history and Chinese graphic design history. She is the author of Hong Kong Comics: A History of Manhua (2002), published by Princeton Architectural Press, and she often receives invitations to speak on the topic at international venues. Her latest book, entitled The Disappearance of Hong Kong in Comics, Advertising and Graphic Design (2018), published by Palgrave Macmillan, utilizes the city as a case study to demonstrate the potential of these three media to offer us a global understanding of contemporary visual cultures. In recognition of her expertise in Chinese graphic design history, she was invited as a contributor to The Phaidon Archive of Graphic Design (2012) and the Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Design (2016). She is a contributor and a regional editor of the Greater China Region for the Encyclopedia of East Asian Design (2020). In addition, Dr. Wong served as an Editorial Board member of the Journal of Design History between 2012 and 2017.
