Afterlife of Images by Heinrich, Larissa N.
Afterlife of Images: Translating the Pathological Body Between China and the West
by Heinrich, Larissa N.
 
Combining literary studies, the history of science, and visual culture studies, Heinrich analyzes the rhetoric and iconography through which medical missionaries transmitted to the West an image of China as "sick" or "diseased." She also examines the absorption of that image back into China through missionary activity, through the earliest translations of Western medical texts into Chinese, and even through the literature of Chinese nationalism.
