About the project

This research investigates the intersection of traditional medical systems and medical languages in maritime Southeast Asia, with Singapore at the centre. Drawing on ethnographic research by the PI, it recognizes that Chinese dialect speakers use local (Malay World) medicinal plants but conceptualise their use in Chinese (not only Malay) medical frames. This points to a hitherto unstudied history of the cross-linguistic exchange of medical knowledge in the region, framed here as polyglot medicine.
