The Nineteenth Barnard Medieval & Renaissance Conference
Medicine Across Cultures: 600-1600 December 4, 2004
Fixed notions of ” The West” and “The East” as cultural models often disguise and distort more than they reveal. This is especially true when applied to the pre-modern world. Our Nineteenth Barnard Medieval and Renaissance Conference explores the wealth of cross-cultural sharing and exchange that characterized medical theory and practice in this period. At the same time, it illuminates the great complexity and sophistication of the pre-modern medical tradition.
All events will take place in Barnard Hall. The Barnard gate is on the west side of Broadway at 117t Street.
This event is undertaken by the generous support of the Office of the Provost, Barnard College.
