Dr. Richard Noll Awarded Invitational Fellowship for Research in Japan

Dr. Richard Noll, associate professor of psychology, has been awarded an Invitational Fellowship for Research in Japan by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. Eight Japanese universities submitted applications to the JSPS to bring foreign scholars to Japan and three were selected.

Dr. Noll will be lecturing on his theoretical and fieldwork contributions to the topic of shamanism at the University of Shiga Prefecture, the National Museum for Ethnology, and at the University of the Ryukyus in Okinawa. He also will be in the Ryukyu Islands to interview and observe the rituals of traditional Ryukyuan mediums/shamans known as yuta. Ryukyuan religious traditions are ancient, not Japanese (although related), and have the unique aspect of having women as the primary authorities in all matters spiritual.

Dr. Noll will be in Japan from June 13 – 27.
