9th Tekijuku Lectures -- "Tekijuku in History - What Did We Learn from Tekijuku and How was it Chronicled?"

2016-10-22 (Sat) - 2016-12-3 (Sat)

It is said that the individuals who studied at Tekijuku, founded by OGATA Koan, have contributed greatly to the modernization of medicine and public health. Even among the schools of Dutch studies that were established towards the end of the Edo Period, how was Tekijuku so highly regarded? We'll focus on topics such as the characteristics of Tekijuku as an educational institute for European medicine and its role in medicine in Japan in the late Edo period and later, and we will discuss what we learned from Tekijuku and how it was chronicled. For this year's Tekijuku Lectures, we've invited scholars in the medical history of the Netherlands and Japan to re-examine the role of Tekijuku in the history of medicine from European and Japanese viewpoints.
