Immigrants to the Pure LandAma, Michihiro (University of Alaska Anchorage. Bookstore, 2011-04-11)Michihiro Ama's new book is called Immigrants to the Pure Land: The Modernization, Acculturation, and Globalization of Shin Buddhism, 1898-1941. In it his "investigation of the early period of Jodo Shinshu in Hawai'i and the United States sets a new standard for investigating the processes of religious acculturation and a radically new way of thinking about these processes." At this event, Michihiro Ama examines the concept of acculturation as a dual process of both "Japanization" and "Americanization." Michihiro Ama currently teaches at UAA in the Department of Languages.
