Chères et chers collègues,
Il reste encore quelques jours pour soumettre une proposition d’intervention pour le colloque STS Italie (https://www.frombelow-stsitaliaconf.org/) qui se tiendra du 14 au 16 juin 2018 à Padoue.
Nous vous invitons à participer au panel "Technology and innovation in Chinese medical practices outside China” dont vous trouvez la présentation ci-dessous.
En espérant vous voir à Padoue (tout près de Venise!) en juin

The evolution and technological innovation of medicines claiming to be "traditional" is often confronted with movements of transnational circulation and with the appropriation and redefinition and of their knowledge and know-how by other countries and cultures. This is certainly the case of therapeutic practices coming from Chinese medicine such as acupuncture and moxibustion, massages and the prescription of Chinese pharmacopoeia remedies.
In Europe and North America works published recently (Hsu 2006, 2007; Bivins 2007; Zhan 2009; Guilloux 2013; Candelise 2016) have made it possible to understand how, during the first part of the 19th century, acupuncture began to be practiced in private medical offices as well as in hospitals by doctors and therapists trained inside or outside China, following a logic of network circulation. Subsequently, Chinese medical practices spread in Africa and South America from the 1970s with some different logic of dissemination. i.e.: In Africa acupuncture began to be practiced in some hospitals thanks to the arrival of the medical teams belonging to the Chinese cooperation.
Parallel to the circulation of Chinese medical knowledge appear different sorts of technological medical devices, related to Chinese medicine (electro-acupuncture stimulators, acupuncture points finders, quantum analysers, etc…) that remain little studied. In Europe, as in Africa in private and public daily practice doctors and therapists use technological innovation coming from China. In these processes of medical innovation, the "Chinese" origin is sometimes asserted, sometimes camouflaged, or put in the background behind their "technological modernity".
While researches on the spreading of Chinese medical practices outside Chine has mainly focused on circulation of knowledge and figures, our panel aims to highlight the circulation of technological medical devices. Thereby we want to stress how these technical objects are connected to the process of medical innovation appearing in different socio-cultural contexts.
This tack aims to bring together interventions by researchers working on the dynamics of internationalization of Chinese medical practices in different country and cultures from different disciplinary approaches.
