Biography

My area of concentration in East Asian Studies is East Asian Nationalism, focusing especially on Japanese nationalism.  I have been teaching Japanese language and culture for sixteen years at several institutions in Indiana, including Indiana University, Rose-Hulman Institution of Technology, IUPUI, Vincennes University, University of Evansville, and University of Southern Indiana.  I also taught at Bloomington High School South as a full time teacher for seven years.  I am currently researching nationalism in education.
