Major Research Themes & Current Projects
This project is funded by RGC General Research Fund (2009-10).Medical Culture in the Canton-Hong Kong Region in the Long Nineteenth Century
This project takes a comparative approach to colonial medicine and its implications for medical culture in contemporary society. It has three parts. First, it analyzes policies and moralities regarding disease and epidemic control in the very different historical contexts of China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Second, it examines regional flows of people, goods and diseases, and how post-colonial institutions and emerging economies can proactively devise ways to prevent serious health risks. Third, it will explore how experimental medical sciences and practices in China and the Middle East deeply affect gender, social relationships, and new moral debates.Colonial Medicine, Science and Contemporary Public Health
