Does It Take a Miracle? negotiating knowledges, identities and communities of traditional Chinese medicine

Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Public License

Zhan traces the multiple trajectories and meanings of 'clinical miracles' in the everyday practice and discourse of traditional Chinese medicine in Shanghai and the San Francisco Bay Area. The marginality of Chinese medicine is constructed and constantly transformed through a set of uneven, interactive sociohistorical processes of knowledge, identity and community formation, and is itself a set of heterogeneous processes that mediate the transfiguration of various knowledges, identities and communities.
