Ann Hironaka, Faculty Fellow, Spring 2006
Ann Hironaka (Sociology, College of Liberal Arts)
Professor Hironaka, Department of Sociology, examined the historical and social processes through which military strategies and state interests were formed in the period leading up to the First World War with particular focus on how the international community and global discourses shaped the perceived security of nation-states. As a result of her fellowship she gave two paper presentations, “Conflict and Heterogeneity in the Interwar Tank Debates,” at the International Studies Association in Chicago, IL, February 2007, and “The Formation of Military Strategy,” to the Department of Sociology, University of California Irvine, December 2006. This work also contributed to an article, Eric Dahlin, “Citizenship Beyond Borders: A Cross National Study of Dual Citizenship,” published in Sociological Inquiry in 2007.
In 2007, Professor Hironaka joined the department of Sociology at the University of California, Irvine.
