Abstract

Our workshop and conference are intended to critically examine the processes that seek to integrate traditional East Asian medicines into contemporary health care systems in order to move towards new solutions: solutions that consciously and self-reflectively work the seam between integration and authenticity as a resource to be exploited rather than as a problem that gets in the way. To this end we will bring together leading researchers working in the fields of East Asian or complementary medicines from a variety of disciplines that do not generally speak to each other: clinicians and clinical researchers, anthropologists and medical historians, health economists and science studies experts. From one side, we hope to face clinicians and researchers with questions that do not normally surface in debates about safety, effectiveness, and the integration of different traditions in the medical domain.
