Mei Zhan

Mei Zhan is an Associate Professor in the University of California, Irvine's Department of Anthropology. Her work is concerned with what traditional Chinese medicine in Shanghai and the San Francisco Bay Area can tell us about globalization, transnationalism, and the formation of knowledges, identities, and communities. She is especially interested in bringing medical anthropology and science and technology studies in conversation with feminism, humanism/posthumanism, theory and methodology, and China studies.

This PECE essay helps to answer the STS Across Borders analytic question: “What people, projects, and products exemplify how this STS formation has developed over time?”

This essay is part of a broader exhibit on UCI Anthro STS.
