For a Special Issue of JMH tentatively titled “Love's Labors: Representing Caregiving in the Family,” we seek scholarly essays on the topic of non-professional, familial caregiving.  We prefer papers written by academicians who have experiential knowledge of caring for an ill or disabled family member or other intimate.


Contemporary Chinese art and Chinese medicine

Dear All,

I am trying to find (to no avail so far) living Chinese artists whose works have close or distant connection with Chinese traditional medecine.

Vanessa Frangville
