news to let you know about our program.
First, we had a workshop on "Direct Payment" with Dr. Simon
Prideaux from University of Leeds.
We will post Prof. Tateiwa's report at this workshop and memorandum
on direct payment on our website soon and will let you know when it
Second, we have had Mr.Zachary Beckstead through the JSPS Summer
Program since June 23, 2009.
The following is his self-introduction.
Zachary Beckstead is a doctoral candidate visiting from Clark University
in Worcester, Massachusetts. His Bacholers degree is from Brigham Young
University and he received a masters degree from the University of West
Georgia. His interests are in the history and philosophy of psychology
and examining and investigating the potential of alternative approaches
to psychology. His current research interests are in the meaning-making
processes in visits to symbolic locations. These visits range from
mundane visits and tourist acts to pilgrimages.
These interests, a chance to visit Ritsumeikan University, and a grant
from the National Science Foundation have brought him to Kyoto.
He is also extremely happy visiting the Research Center Ars Vivendi of
Ritsumeikan University and has enjoyed discussing many ideas with
excellent scholars and hopes to continue further collaboration!
