Constance Cook, Ph.D.

Professor of Modern Languages & Literatures

Dr. Connie Cook has published Death in Ancient China: The Tale of One Man's Journey (Leiden, Brill Press, 2006). The book assesses information from one of China's oldest "medical records," which were buried in the patient's tomb. Forthcoming is Pre-Han Healing in the Harvard Illustrated History of Chinese Medicine and Healing (Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press). Professor Cook's research also addresses healing traditions before the second century B.C. In the future, she would like to teach a course on Chinese medicine.
