Netina Tan founds Asia Research Group to help Mac become more ‘globally minded’

Since arriving at the University in January 2013, Netina Tan has devoted much of her considerable energy to re-imagining Asia-focused research and education at McMaster.

Jan 01, 2014

Tan, an assistant professor in the department of Political Science, has been spearheading the development of the Asia Research Working Group, an interdisciplinary community of scholars focused on engaging faculty and students around Asia research.

“My own research interests are in East and Southeast Asia,” says Tan. “When I first came to Mac, I wanted to connect with other Asia scholars to talk about social and economic issues and current affairs, but there was no existing network. I wanted to find out who was working on what and build a community.”
