A Conversation on Medical Diversities in China | 关于中国医学多样性的对话

Wednesday, January 20, 2021 9:00 am - 10:00 am



In the early 2000s, the government of China encouraged the nation’s 55 registered minority nationalities to develop local medical knowledge and practices that could work alongside the established institutions of traditional Chinese medicine and biomedicine. Dr. Farquhar and Dr. Lai will discuss their many years of research on 'minority medicines' and their forthcoming book Gathering Medicines: Nation and Knowledge in China’s Mountain South.  The book bears witness to a remarkable moment of state-led knowledge development while appreciating local therapeutic practices scattered through rural China.  This conversation offers insight into the research partnerships and field investigations that made possible a new view of medical diversity in China.
