PhD Fellowship: EASTmedicine Research Centre,
University of Westminster, London


Project title: Transnational Conversations in the
Development of Medicine in China and Japan between the 18th to 20th centuries (http://www.westminster.ac.uk/courses/research-degrees/research-areas/life-sciences/research-studentships/development-of-medicine-in-china-and-japan-studentship2)




Background to research and synopsis



The proposed project forms part of the Wellcome Trust
sponsored research cluster “Beyond Tradition: Styles of Practice and Ways of
Knowing in East Asian Medicines, 1000-Present.” The cluster explores the
emergence and transformations of medical practices in East
Asia from a trans-local perspective drawing on research methods
from across the medical humanities.




The specific objective of this PhD project is to
investigate and compare the ways in which traditional healing practices in
China and Japan were shaped by transcultural exchanges of medical and
intellectual ideas at key moments during the 17th to early 20th centuries
(roughly corresponding to the Edo and Meiji eras in Japan, and the Qing and
Republican periods in China). We are specifically interested in examining one
or more of the following questions: How and why did critiques of medical
practice inspired by evidential scholarship land western learnings lead to the
development of very different styles of practice in Japan and China beginning
in the 18th century, and what is the relation between the two? How specifically
did transformations of medical practice in Edo and Meiji Japan influence
the modernisation of Chinese medicine in late Qing and Republican China? To
what extent was the development of modern “traditional Chinese medicine” by
ideas and concepts imported from Japan after the late 19th century
into Republican China? The answers to such questions will significantly advance
our understanding of East Asian medicines by revealing how these medical
traditions developed in conversation with each other over the past few
centuries. The project will therefore enable us to go beyond current analytical
frameworks that depict traditional medicines as the singular cultural
patrimonies of one or another nation-state




To this end the successful candidate is expected to
carry out library based research in the UK, China, Japan and other locations as
appropriate. Although primarily located within the history of medicine, the
research should share the orientations of the wider project. These include an
interest in epistemic historiography and cultural history. The successful
candidate is expected to have the skills necessary to carry out this research.
Further training will be provided via the EASTmedicine Research Centre, the
University’s Graduate Centre and Chinese or Japanese partner institutions, with
whom the project will be coordinated.

Research in the School of Life Sciences encompasses a
wide range of disciplines from pure to applied science, integrating areas from
structural biology, molecular genetics, applied microbiology and biotechnology
at one extreme to human performance, Chinese medicine, public health nutrition
and wellbeing at the other. In the latest Research Assessment Exercise (2008),
the research outputs of a number of staff were judged to be at the levels of
World Leading (4*) and Internationally Excellent (3*). Research is undertaken
in the University
of Westminster 's
Cavendish site's laboratories using state-of-the-art instrumentation and in the
University Polyclinic. Experienced and research-active staff in the School work
in close collaboration with bio-industry, the NHS, research institutions within
the UK , Europe and the US .
