The York Asia Research Network (YARN) is an interdisciplinary group for people across the University whose research interests relate to Asia.
We have built a multifaceted research infrastructure for Asia related research at York: facilitating the creation of new interdisciplinary partnerships; and strengthening existing international collaborations.
YARN is supported and funded by the Research Centre for Social Sciences (ReCSS). We are located in the ReCSS building on the Science Park.
Welcome to the York Asia Research Network (YARN) webpages. Whilst our Network is new, we build on a long established history of Asian research at York.
YARN's members cover all the faculties in the University, we work across disciplines and acrosss nations (developed and developing) and we all share a focus on Asia. You will find our research outputs and membership organised by broad regional area.
