Visiting Lecturer: Dr. Carla Nappi, Prepositional Bodies: Manchu Chinese Medicine in the Early Modern World

Date: Wednesday Mar 13, 2019,
Time: 3 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Type: Lecture
Department: Hannah Unit in the History of Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, Bachelor of Health Sciences Program, Center for Buddhist Studies, Department of Family Medicine, Department of History
Location: HSC1A4

Speakers:

Dr. Carla Nappi Associate Professor, Mellon Chair in History, University of Pittsburgh

Description:

Based in a larger project devoted to exploring the Manchu language as a medium for translating bodily knowledge in the early modern world, this talk will treat The Manchu Anatomy, an early eighteenth century Manchu text on bodies penned by Jesuits at the Qing Kangxi court, as a site for fieldwork in re-conceptualizing the body as a technology for producing relationships in space and time. We will read the text not as a collection of arms and legs and mouths, but instead as an archive of the kinds of relations of proximity that create material experience: on-ness, with-ness, through-ness, and other kinds of prepositional relations. The talk will suggest that all bodies are bodies in translation, and will offer a model for reading documents from the history of health and medicine in a way that opens up new ways of telling stories with them.


Who Should Attend:

All interested staff, faculty and students in health sciences, humanities, art, social sciences, science, or professional schools
