Editorial Work between Manuscript and Print Culture: Books, Identities and the Medical Book Bureau in Northern Song Dynasty (CHEN Hao)

This talk will explore the interaction between the transformation of the materiality of textual knowledge and the identities of the related knowledge communities based on a study of the Medical Book Bureau in Northern Song Dynasty (960–1127). The major questions of this talk will be: How did the members of the involved knowledge communities perceive and understand this transformation/co-existence of manuscript and print culture? What effects did the editorial process, as a technique to transform manuscript into print, have on their identities? Was there any difference between a book editor and a practitioner making use of the textual medical knowledge? If yes, how did these distinctions model the historical image of medical knowledge in this period?

本演讲试图以北宋校正医书局为例证考察知识文本物质载体的变迁与知识群体身分之间的互动。讨论的重点包括以下几个问题:写本与印本之间的转化/共存是如何被这个时代的知识群体所理解和感知的?校书作为一种在写本和印本之间的知识技术如何塑造了这个时代的知识群体的身分?如果以医学为例证,校医书者与医学知识的实践者之间,有何区别?这种区别又如何塑造了这个时代的医学知识图景?
