Two McMaster professors named to the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists

Two McMaster professors are McMaster’s newest members of the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists, the country’s first national system to recognize multidisciplinary work in emerging intellectual leaders.

Chandrima Chakraborty, a professor of English and cultural studies, is an expert on the 1985 Air India bombings and post-9/11 violence against South Asians. James MacKillop, the Peter Boris Chair in Addictions Research, specializes in the causes and treatments of addictions.

“This is an important recognition of multidisciplinary, community-engaged research,” says Chakraborty. “I hope it will allow me to continue to advance understanding of different, little-known and difficult histories, and facilitate informed, public engagement with diverse knowledge-holders.

“I am delighted to have this opportunity to enrich local, national and global conversations on public memory and cultural history and interact with a wider community of interdisciplinary Canadian scholars at the RSC.”
