LRCCS Noon Lecture Series | Myth-Busting the History of Chinese Medicine: Going Beyond the "Function, Not Structure" Stereotype
Yi-Li Wu is an Associate Professor in the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies and the Department of History at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Her research investigates the intersections of society, culture, and the body in the history of Chinese medicine, with special emphasis on the late imperial period (16th to 19th centuries). Her publications include “Reproducing Women: Medicine, Metaphor, and Childbirth in Late Imperial China” (University of California Press, 2010), as well as articles on medical illustration, forensic medicine, bone setting, breast cancer, and Chinese views of Western anatomical science. She is currently completing a book manuscript on the history of traumatology in China.
