Jue Wang is an Assistant Professor of Literacy Studies at the University of Idaho. She obtained her master degree in Early Childhood Education from Towson University, and her doctoral degree in Curriculum and Instruction from The Pennsylvania State University, University Park. From 2016 to 2021, she taught literacy methods courses in the Elementary and Early Childhood undergraduate teacher education program at the Pennsylvania State University. Currently, she teaches reading and literacy strategies courses in the elementary teacher education program at the University of Idaho.
Her doctoral research is an ethnographic study that provides a nuanced investigation into how young girls acquire and use literacy both as a cognitive enterprise and as a social and cultural undertaking in rural China. Another way of framing this is how factors such as gender, socio-economic status, race and ethnicity, religious and rural/urban identifications impact young girls’ uptake of school-based literacy curriculum. Jue has presented her research at numerous conferences including the American Educational Research Association (AERA), Reconceptualizing Early Childhood Education (RECE), the Association for the American Anthropology (AAA), Literacy Research Association (LRA), International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry (ICQI), National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), and the Curriculum & Pedagogy (C&P), among others.
