I study international relations and comparative politics, with a focus on the problems of nationalism and national identity, especially in Russia and Japan. So far, my research has focused on the process of formation of national identities and their impact on foreign policy. More recently, I have broadened my interest to include how “globalization” is transforming nationalism as the constitutive principle of political communities. I teach the following classes to undergraduates and master-level students: 1) Introduction to IR, 2) IR theory, 3) Japanese foreign policy, 4) comparative politics of post-communist states, 5) nationalism, citizenship, and democracy in Japan, and 6) regional security in Northeast Asia.(Subject of research)
