         Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been widely disseminated
around the world.  China's heritage in this regard has become a
part of world heritage.  The purpose of the conference will be to
examine how TCM changes in diaspora contexts.  The overall
framework will be set within medical anthropology and the study
of pluralism and symbiosis between different medical approaches
to problems of curing and healing sicknesses, biomedical and
worldwide.  Ritual aspects of treatments will be included in the
conference purview.
         The conference will feature papers by Nancy Chen, Christopher
Coggins, Aizhong Li, Shih-Hsiang Sung, Mei Zhan, Qunce Zhang, Wei Zhang,
Wenyi Zhang, and Yanhua Zhang.
