Hi there! I’m the Canada Research Chair in Historical Pataphysics and Associate Professor of History. My main research fields are the histories of science and medicine, early modern (Ming-Qing) China, and translation (broadly conceived), and Manchu studies. I also write short fiction and host the New Books in East Asian Studies and New Books in Science, Technology, and Society podcast channels.
For much more about my work and teaching, please head over to my personal website at http://www.carlanappi.com: I regularly update that page rather than this one.
Nappi reviews Renaissances: The One or the Many? by Jack Goody.
Nappi reviews Inventing the Indigenous: Local Knowledge and Natural History in Early Modern Europe by Alix Cooper.
For a more regularly updated introduction to me (as teacher and learner and writer and podcaster and human and maker of stuff) see my personal website at http://www.carlanappi.com. I haven't had time to update the individual information-sections on this university website, but you can find that stuff on the cv hidden at the bottom of the "About" section of my personal website.
