TJ Hinrichs


 A central thread running through my research and teaching is the investigation of connections between intimate experiences such as illness and personal transformation; communal practices such as medical training and religious rites; and broader historical shifts such as the consolidation of the civil service examination system, commercialization and urbanization, the spread of printing, and the development of landscape painting. My courses explore China’s history from its classical to its modern periods (“Vitality and Power in China,” “Medicine and Healing in China”), sometimes concentrating on the imperial era (“Imperial China”), the early and medieval periods (“Daoist Traditions”) or the late imperial period (“Popular Culture in China,” “Society and Religion in China,” “China’s Early Modern”), and sometimes looking at China and Japan in comparative perspective (“East Asian Martial Arts").
