Joseph Daniels


Fulbright Scholar 2012 Chair, Economics Department, Marquette University

Marquette University

Marquette University, Fall 2012. “U.S. and Canadian Residents’ Attitudes toward Trade, Immigration, and FDI Policies.” "The Department of Political Science at McMaster University and Fulbright Canada provided a wonderful opportunity by creating the Visiting Fulbright Chair in Governance and Public Policy. The department is home to a strong and diverse group of political science faculty and physically positioned close to the other social science departments. The city of Hamilton is warm, welcoming, and experiencing a rebirth. Its location and transportation options make it easy to travel and experience most of the country. The research chair enabled me to improve, complete, and publish a number of scholarly pieces and the experience provided many examples to bring back to my courses on international economics."
