Tracing the Historical and Cultural Trajectories of Antimicrobial Resistance in China (1920 - The Present)

A scholarly workshop and conference in preparation of an edited volume on the history, causes, and effects of antibiotic resistance in China during the 19th and 20th centuries. (12 months)

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses a global threat to humans, animals and the environment, particularly in China, which has been identified as a leading consumer of antibiotics in humans and livestock, and reflects one of the highest rates of AMR in the world (Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy 2018). Scientific research has identified the global reach of AMR, as well as biomedical and agricultural practices that can fuel its development. Yet, no study to date has examined the historical development of AMR or the sociocultural factors that impact AMR, both of which are essential to better understand and redress this global threat. The sharing of the Convening Project collaborators’ research will offer the first comprehensive analysis of the historical and sociocultural antecedents that have contributed to the rise of AMR in China - from the early cultural translation of biomedicine to the present - and will thereby establish a foundation by which the collaborators can effectively plan a multi-authored publication.
