On the Importance of History to Medicine, with Chinese Medicine as Exemplary Case

REGISTER for this event.

Lecture

We call our ancestors’ ideas about health and healing “theories” and our own ideas in use today “facts.” How might we understand the art and science of healing differently if we allowed ourselves to engage in a thought experiment of treating today’s medical science as a theory? This talk explores this provocation with the history of Chinese medicine as a case study.

Speaker

Nicole Elizabeth Barnes is Assistant Professor of History and Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies at Duke University. She is author of the award-winning, open-access book Intimate Communities: Wartime Healthcare and the Birth of Modern China, 1937-1945 (Oakland: University of California Press, 2018).
