Join us for the special edition of JASCO History Club as we welcome Dr. Thomas Kasulis, Emeritus Professor of Comparative Studies at The Ohio State University, and renowned expert on Japanese philosophy. He will provide an introduction to Shinto, an indigenous religion of Japanese people, and discuss how Shinto is manifested in Japanese culture. 

Dr. Kasulis is a former Chair of the Department of Comparative Studies and also of the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures. He was also the founding director of OSU's Institute for Collaborative Research and Public Humanities. He has written numerous books and scholarly articles on Japanese religious thought and Western philosophy, including "Shinto: The Way Home" (2004), which was also translated into Japanese and published in Japan.
