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 will offer insight into the research partnerships and field investigations that made possible a new view of medical diversity in China.

21世纪前后,中国开始大力发展民族医药知识与实践,支持它们与已成建制的中医和西医体系并行不悖;“民族医药”成为国家主导下的知识发展项目。冯珠娣和赖立里将介绍她们关于这一项目的多年研究,以及即将出版的专著《采药:中国南部山区的民族与知识》。该书不仅见证了“民族医药”发展的重要历史时刻,也对散在于中国农村地区的地方医疗实践作出了深切解读,为中国的医学多样性提供了一个崭新的视角。本次对话将带您深入了解该合作研究的田野调查与伙伴关系。
