A Talk by Carla Nappi, Canada Research Chair and Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.
Dr. Nappi specializes in the history of China, science, and translation in early modernity. Her recent book, The Monkey and the Inkpot: Natural History and its Transformations in Early Modern China (Harvard University Press, 2009), is a study of belief-making in early modern Chinese natural history through the lens of the Bencao gangmu (1596), a compendium of materia medica.
