Biography:

After I finished my Master at the University of Tübingen on Tokutomi Sohō’s Shōrai no Nihon I went for a year to the University of Tsukuba where I was engaged in folklore studies, especially in Shugendō. Thereafter I taught at Ritsumeikan University in Kyōto and became involved in cultural concepts of health which includes also the acquisition of practical knowledge in East Asian medicine.

Research Interests

I am interested in the broader cultural context of health, illness and medicine. My PhD deals with the popularisation of medicine in Tokugawa Japan, especially the role of manuals for self-help.
