Di Lu Wins IASTAM Junior Scholar Essay Prize

27 January 2016

We are delighted and proud to announce that current CCHH PhD student Di Lu 蘆笛 has been honoured with the IASTAM Charles Leslie Junior Scholar Essay Award for his outstanding paper 'Transnational Circulation of the Knowledge of the Caterpillar Fungus to Early 20th Century'.

This prize is awarded yearly for the best original, unpublished scholarly essay on Asian medicine submitted to the competition and judged by the Council of IASTAM (The International Association for the Study of Traditional Asian Medicine).

The organisers commented that Di Lu is doing 'very exciting research'. They wrote:
This is a fine study of the transnational networks that collaborated in creating knowledge of the caterpillar fungus that relies on extensive primary sources in Chinese, Tibetan, and several European languages as well as a strong conceptual framing using Harold Cook’s arguments about how intertwined global trade was with development of natural knowledge and science in the early modern period.

(see: http://iastam.org/?page_id=532)

Congratulations, Di Lu!
