Please join the celebration of the publication of Professor Colleen Derkatch's book, Bounding Biomedicine: Evidence and Rhetoric in the New Science of Alternative Medicine. The book tracks how the concept of evidence is invoked in arguments about complementary and alternative medicine to show that what counts as a safe, effective health treatment--whether alternative or not--is constrained by the terms of the debate itself. Bounding Biomedicine will be available for purchase at the launch at a special discount. There will be complementary hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. The event is supported by the Department of English and the Office of the Dean, Faculty of Arts, Ryerson University. RSVP by 11 April:
