Department of East Asian Studies welcomes three new professors
Earlier this semester, McGill welcomed three professors to the East Asian Studies Department. Kimberly Chung, Maria Hwang, and Rongdao Lai have diverse backgrounds and experiences that are opening up new and exciting opportunities for students within the Faculty of Arts.
Jarrett was an extraordinarily warm, generous, and happy person, with a great sense of humour and an infectious smile. Everywhere he went, he was the life of the party and the profession.
