Professor Kelly is a noted authority on the social and historical anthropology of Japan. He has focused much of his research in the last two decades on regional agrarian societies in Japan. Since 1996, however, Professor Kelly has been conducting field research on the history and present patterns of professional baseball in the cities of Osaka and Kobe. We talk with him about sports in contemporary Japan.
