LRCCS Noon Lecture Series | Global Medicine in Chinese East Asia, 1937-1970
Wayne Soon (PhD Princeton) is an Assistant Professor of History at Vassar College. His book, "Global Medicine in China: A Diasporic History" (Stanford University Press, 2020), tells the global medical histories of Chinese East Asia through the lens of diasporic Chinese medical personnel, who were central in introducing new practices of military medicine, blood banking, mobile medicine, and mass medical training to China and Taiwan. Universal care, practical medical education, and mobile medicine are all lasting legacies of this effort on both sides of the Taiwan Straits. Dr. Soon’s published and forthcoming articles can be found in "Twentieth Century China," "Bulletin of the History of Medicine," "American Journal of Chinese Studies," and "East Asian Science, Technology and Society: An International Journal."
