Lecture: Rethinking Medicalization and Social Control Through an Eleventh Century Chinese Lens

6:00pm to 7:30pm

Speaker: TJ Hinrichs , Associate Professor, History Department, Cornell University

"A central thread running through my research and teaching is the investigation of connections between intimate experiences such as illness and personal transformation; communal practices such as medical training and religious rites; and broader historical shifts such as the consolidation of the civil service examination system, commercialization and urbanization, the spread of printing, and the development of landscape painting."
