YCAR is pleased to welcome Dr. Andrew Song to the Centre as its inaugural YCAR/ABMP Postdoctoral Visitor in Asian Governance.
Andrew recently completed his PhD in Geography at Memorial University of Newfoundland. His research focuses on the governance of natural resource extraction, with particular reference to coastal small-scale fisheries. He has some familiarity with fisheries in the Philippines and Malawi, but his main focus is on South Korea. His current project at YCAR looks at the geopolitics of fishing activities as they relate to border-making and governmentality involving the two Koreas in the Yellow Sea.
Andrew will be working with Dr Peter Vandergeest and will be with us at YCAR (Room 829) until July. Please do take the opportunity to have a chat with Andrew if you see areas of common interest.
