    Miranda Brown teaches various aspects of Chinese history and the History of Medicine in China.

She is in the midst of completing a book entitled the Many Faces of Early Chinese Medicine, which examines the formation of the classical medical tradition during the early imperial period. In addition, she is the editor of Fragments: Interdisciplinary Approaches to the Study of Ancient and Medieval Pasts, published through MPublishing.
