From the announcement for C. Michele Thompson's talk this Friday (Nov. 9th):
Abstract: This talk will present the history of the exchange of medical products and knowledge between China and Vietnam. It will challenge the conventional assumption that Vietnamese medicine is Chinese in origin and will note that much of Chinese medicine is actually Vietnamese.
This should be interesting! In preparation I will be going through my textbook《中国医学史》* to get the mainstream Chinese perspective on Chinese-Vietnamese medical interactions throughout history, and will post a summary in the next few days.
