Dr. Lana Wylie held a Postdoctoral fellowship at the Institution for Social and Policy Studies at Yale University in 2003-2004. In 2005, she began tenure-track appointment as Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science, McMaster University.

Dr. Wylie’s research focuses on Canadian and American foreign policy, Latin American and Caribbean politics with an emphasis on Cuba, and international relations. Her book, Perceptions of Cuba: Canadian andAmerican Polices in Comparative Perspective (University of Toronto Press, 2010) compares Canadian and American policies toward Cuba. She has recently co-edited two volumes on Canadian foreign policy. They are Canadian Foreign Policy in Critical Perspective (with J. Marshall Beier) (Oxford University Press, 2010); Our Place in the Sun: Canada and Cuba in the Castro Era (with Robert Wright) (University of Toronto Press, 2009). She has also published articles examining American and Canadian relations with the Caribbean. Her article, “Isolate or Engage: Divergent Approaches to Foreign Policy Toward Cuba,” was published in Heather Nicol and Michele Zebich-Knos, edited volume, Foreign Policy Toward Cuba: Isolate or Engage (Lanham, MD: Lexington Books, 2005). Another article, “Identity and Perception in Foreign Policy: A Comparative Study of Canadian and American Foreign Policy,” was published in Canadian Foreign Policy (2004). Other recent works include “Globalization and Africa’s Experience: Fetching Water from a Broken Cistern.” (with Charles Conteh) in Howard Wiarda ed. Globalization: Universal Trends, Regional Implications (University Press of New England, 2007); and “In Search of Prestige: Canadian Foreign Policy and the International Criminal Court” (2009) with the American Review of Canadian Studies. In 2009-10 she received a Research fellowship from the Canadian International Council to study the Canadian-Cuban relationship. Most recently, she was the guest editor of an issue of Canadian Foreign Policy Journal (2010) entitled “The Politics of Canada-Cuba Relations: Emerging Possibilities and Diverse Challenges.”
