Tibetan Religion & Medicine

Healing Elements: Defending and Transforming Tibetan Medicine in the 21st Century

Dr. Sienna Craig, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology at Dartmouth College, will explore how Tibetan medicine circulates through diverse settings in Nepal, China, and beyond as commercial goods and gifts, and as targeted therapies and panacea for biophysical and psychosocial ills. She will consider what it means to say Tibetan medicine "works" and what the stakes are in such discussions. Her talk is based upon more than a decade of anthropological research.
