  • Maria Portuondo Lab

    The Maria Portuondo Lab conducts research on early modern science and technology in Europe and Latin America. Our team focuses primarily on Spain and the Americas but also delves into rarely explored topics within the traditional narrative of early modern science and the scientific revolution. We investigate several general themes within the history of science, including intellectual history, methodological aspects of scientific practice, epistemological issues of knowledge production, science in the context of territorial expansion and the role of science in an imperial context.

  • 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.

  • Mary Fissell Lab

    Research in the Mary Fissell Lab looks at the ways in which average people in early modern England understood health, healing and the natural world. In an ongoing study of vernacular knowledge (ideas about the natural world that ordinary people created, shaped and used), we are examining the popular medical book Aristotle's Masterpiece, first published in 1684. Research has also focused on health care for the poor in 18th-century urban Britain and on how ordinary people learned about their bodies from inexpensive print publications.
