Yoshiko M. Herrera is Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.  Her current research focuses on US-Russian relations, xenophobia in Russia, jazz and race in Russia, identity and the stability of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), formal models of identity and international security.  Her first book, Imagined Economies: The Sources of Russian Regionalism (Cambridge University Press, 2005), examines the relationship between economics and regionalism in movements for greater sovereignty among the Russian regions of the Russian Federation.  A second book and collaborative project with Rawi Abdelal, Alastair Iain Johnston, Rose McDermott, and Will Lowe, focused on measurement of Social identities.  This project resulted in an article, an edited volume titled, Measuring Identity: A Guide for Social Scientists, and a content Analysis, program, the Yoshikoder.  Herrera’s Third book, Mirrors of the Economy: National accounts and international norms in Russia and beyond, was an Honorable Mention for the 2011 Ed A.
