Workshop: Medieval Medicine and Belief Across Eurasia

A student workshop with Dr Ronit Yoeli-Tlalim (Goldsmiths, University of London) titled 'Medieval Medicine and Belief Across Eurasia' will be held at the University of Leeds on 12 March 2019.

Student Workshop

The student workshop 'Medieval Medicine and Belief Across Eurasia' is hosted by Dr Ronit Yoeli-Tlalim (Wellcome Trust Research Fellow and Senior Lecturer, Goldsmiths, University of London). The workshop is for all postgraduate researchers interested in medieval medicine and beliefs about the body, and cultural contacts between Asia and Europe in the Middle Ages. The discovery of the Dunhuang Caves on the Silk Road radically transformed our understanding of these medieval contacts.

Participants will discuss an illustrated essay coauthored by Toeli-Tlalim, titled 'Travelling Light: Sino-Tibetan Moxa-Cautery from Dunhuang'.
