"Japan in Asian American Studies" by Dr. Nancy Stalker

Professor Stalker is an associate professor in Asian studies and core faculty in Asian American studies. Her scholarship examines the relationship between cultural and religious practice and national identity in modern Japan. Her first book, on new religious movements in the 1920s-30s, is entitled Prophet Motive: Deguchi Onisaburo, Oomoto and the Rise of New Religions in Imperial Japan. Her next monographic project will examine the role of ikebana, the art of flower arrangement, in constructing national and international Japanese identity in the twentieth century, especially focusing on its rapid expansion in postwar Japan from the 1950s-70s. Other research interests include the conception of traditional Japanese cuisine and gender ideology.
