U-M Conference on Chinese Legal Medicine

How have different societies incorporated medical knowledge into legal decision-making? What can the practices of earlier eras teach us about today? This international and interdisciplinary conference on the history of Chinese legal medicine will explore China's centuries-long tradition of forensic medicine in a cross-cultural perspective. Presenters and commentators come from a wide range of backgrounds, including specialists in the history of law and the history of medicine in China, Europe, North America and the Middle East, as well as present-day forensics experts and pathologists.

All events will be held at the Thayer Academic Building (202 South Thayer).

For a schedule and list of speakers and papers, please see the conference website at sitemaker.umich.edu/chinese.legal.med or e-mail yiliwu[at]umich[dot]edu.

This conference was made possible by funding from the American Council of Learned Societies/Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation and from the University of Michigan’s Department of Asian Languages and Cultures Chinese Humanities Grant; Office of the Vice President for Research; College of Letters, Sciences, and Arts; International Institute; and Department of Pathology.
