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.

Faculty & Staff: Donate to the Brown Bag Raffle

The DSU BBQ Committee has been busy planning for this year’s event. Last year’s Brown Bag Raffle was a lot of fun and we would like to bring it back for this year’s barbeque. All we need to make this happen are the fun promotional items from your own departments. If your department would like to donate items (like t-shirts, pens, post-its, stress balls, baseball hats, bobble heads, etc.) for a brown bag, just send them in campus mail to Teresa Manion in Gambet 147L, or drop them off to her.

Please donate by May 18. The BBQ Committee appreciates your participation in this project.
