CHEN Yunju

Research Assistant

CHEN Yunju is a D.Phil. student in Oriental Studies at the University of Oxford. She joined the project as a Research Assistant in December 2010, and worked on the markup of two notebooks by Wang Mingqing: Tou Xia Lu 投轄錄 (Record for Entertaining Guests) and Yu Zhao Xin Zhi 玉照新志 (New Records for Commemorating the Reception of a Jade Artifact). She also compiled a bibliography of scholarship on Chinese notebooks.

Yunju obtained her BA and MA degree from the Department of History at National Taiwan University. Her MA thesis concerned the history of medicine and gender in early imperial China, and focused on the question of how diseases that were believed to be brought by improper sexual intercourse were gradually assigned to gender characteristics in medical texts from Han to Tang dynasty (220 BCE - AD 907). Continuing this research interest in the history of medicine in pre-modern China, she is now examining how individuals during the Song period (960-1279) understood, interpreted, and addressed the relations between environmental factors and disease.
