Living Well in China

What does it mean to live well? What does it take to thrive in a world where rapid development and structural inequality can often hinder the pursuit of health? 

This conference will explore the search for well-being in contemporary China, and the sometimes unexpected forms that this search has taken.

Instead of assuming mind, body, and the social and natural environments as separate entities or fields of inquiry, the presenters at this conference examine the ways in which they are deeply entwined and creatively refigured. This will come through four points of entry: Tradition and Innovation in Medical Practice, Psychology and Spirituality, Health as Social Phenomenon, and Technology and Health Infrastructures.

Hear the original, and sometimes radical, methods by which Chinese health practices have been reshaped and redefined in response to contemporary conditions, challenges, and desires.
