Prof. Julia Yongue has been visiting at the Institut d’Asie Orientale for four months as part of her sabbatical leave from Hosei University. Her work deals with issues in the history of health and medicine, with a focus on vaccine. Julia took advantage of her stay in France to conduct both documentary research and interviews with various actors in the field of vaccine.
On the eve of her departure from France — Julia will continue her sabbatical leave at Harvard University next year — Yveline Lecler organized an informal farewell party at her home in the Monts d’or countryside. A group of IAO fellows got together to wish Julia « bonne route » and to give her a souvenir from IAO.
