The Japanese Myths: A Guide to Gods, Heroes and Spirits
Society for Asian Art and Asian Art Museum are separate non-profit organizations with separate memberships. Please use the appropriate registration buttons to register for Society programs.
Japan’s centuries-old beliefs in gods and spirits are brought to life in The Japanese Myths: A Guide to Gods, Heroes and Spirits, a wonderfully well-researched book by Joshua Frydman. If you are going to Japan or are interested in mythology, don’t miss this fantastic lecture!
Joshua Frydman is Assistant Professor of Japanese at the University of Oklahoma. A scholar on ancient Japan, his interests include the development of writing systems in East Asia and the role of global cultural interactions in the development of pre-modern societies as viewed through literature and art.
