  • Marta Hanson Lab

    Research in the Marta Hanson Lab explores the history of Chinese science and medicine, specifically within the late imperial period. Our studies focus on topics such as the history of epidemics and disease in China; the relationship between visual and textual representations in the culture’s medical texts; and imperial, regional and local traditions in Chinese medicine. We also investigate the interaction between vernacular and elite medical knowledge as well as conceptions of space, the body, ethnicity and native-place identity in China.
