Imagining Chinese Medicine

Imagining Chinese Medicine image

Between  2004 and 2006 a UCL/Academy of Chinese Medicine project, then named 'Chinese Medicine: A Visual History', collected, catalogued, described and placed on line 1,400 medical illustrations from the history of Chinese medicine. http://images.wellcome.ac.uk/ (search on ‘Vivienne Lo’).

At the culmination of the first stage of the project, we convened an international conference in Beijing, which resulted in the Chinese publication Xingxiang Zhongyi 形象中醫 (Imagining Chinese Medicine), edited by Vivienne Lo and Wang Shumin and published in Beijing by Renmin Weisheng chubanshe. An edited and extensively supplemented English edition is now in preparation.
