Human Development Chair and Professor, Qi Wang, was appointed the next editor-in-chief for the Journal of Applied Research in Memory & Cognition (JARMAC). She will serve as editor of the journal for a five-year term that begins in January 2021.
JARMAC is the flagship journal of the Society for Applied Research in Memory and Cognition, an international organization for researchers who study memory and cognition in the real world.
A leading researcher in the study of memory and culture in the College of Human Ecology, Wang also serves as director of the Culture & Social Cognition Laboratory. Her groundbreaking work shows that memory, as personal and private as it can be, is in fact profoundly shaped by cultural beliefs and practices. In addition to her research contributions, she has had extensive editorial and leadership experiences working with diverse individuals and teams to set and accomplish goals. “The field of memory and cognitive research has become increasingly interdisciplinary and integrative, where researchers utilize diverse and rigorous approaches to answer questions of real-world relevance, Wang said. “I envision JARMAC to be the foremost outlet that publishes the best of such research.”
