Tan Yunxian / 谈允贤

[x]

I noticed we haven’t featured a lot of medieval POC women in science, so here’s one. 

Tan Yunxian (1461–1554) was a doctor in Ming Dynasty China. She came from a family of physicians, specialised in gynecology, and lived to the age of 93.

She’s unusual in that she left behind a book, titled Sayings of A Woman Doctor / 女医杂言. It’s made up of 31 case studies - "habitual abortion, menstrual disorders, postpartum diseases, and abdominal lumps" - which she treated using traditional techniques such as moxibustion.

I couldn’t find any portraits of Tan Yunxian, but there’s currently a TV drama being made inspired by her life, called The Imperial Doctress / 女医·明妃传. I’m sure it’s going to be wildly inaccurate, but at least it’ll remind folks that women’s history in old China wasn’t just about bound feet.

William Shakespeare re-imagined by 15 different artists

The original list is in Spanish so we thought we’d pull out a few favorites for you:

1.) “Tattooed Shakespeare” by Mathew McFarren.

2.) A surrealist depiction of the Bard by Rafal Olbinski. (Those purple tights…)

3.) Shakespeare painted as the Terminator for the production of Terminator the Second, a stage parody of the blockbuster Terminator 2: Judgement Day. (Side note: The script of Terminator the Second is made up entirely of lines and phrases from Willie’s plays.You cannot make this stuff up…)

4.) A watercolor by Fred Sebastian for the Ottawa Citizen. 

5.) Illustrator Pete Ellis had Will sit down with Sigmund Freud for the cover of Mental Health Practice.
