Gerui Wang is a Lecturer (Spring 2024) at Stanford University Center for East Asian Studies. Her research interests span arts, public policy, environment, and technologies. Her first book Landscape, Governance, and Ecology in China, 1000-1400 is forthcoming from the Hong Kong University Press.

Her new project examines contemporary art and AI, examining issues of medium, creativity, authenticity, automation, and human-machine entanglement. Her writings on topics such as AI ethics and AI’s applications in arts and culture have been published in venues such as The Wire China and South China Morning Post. She is also a member of Teaching Art History with AI, an NEH-funded workshop led by Dr. Allison Langmead from the University of Pittsburgh.
