In addition to causing physical suffering, the spread of venereal diseases also increased stigma, knowledge, and business prospects. The intimate connection between venereal diseases and the scientific, political, economic, and cultural factors of the time, however, has not been addressed in earlier studies. This study adopts a medical humanities perspective to investigate how the cultural construction of venereal disease in Republican Shanghai interacted with the intellectual transitions, cultural transformations, and political realities by taking Shun Pao as well as Zhang Ziping’s fiction as objects. Reportage, editorials, and advertisements in Shun Pao highlight the coexistence of the old and the new: editorials on syphilis emphasize the semi-coloniality of Shanghai, and news reports condemn the spreaders with a strong moral stance, completely sacrificing the privacy of victims while also exaggerating and alienating the homosexuality. Western and Eastern pathological discourses in medical ads are appropriated to ensure that average readers can understand them and to reinforce their legitimacy and authority. In advertisements, the visual representation of patients continued to repress women’s experiences with the disease and construct a new medical authority. Zhang Ziping’s novels feature a large number of syphilis patients, and his narration of the disease experience is always intended to showcase his own scientific nature; in contrast, women’s experience of venereal diseases eventually becomes a denial of their identity. This study first gathers multiple textual and visual materials from Shun Pao to compensate for the lack of previous attention paid to the spread of venereal disease in Republican Shanghai. On top of that, this project also incorporates a variety of theoretical methods, such as medical humanities, postcolonial studies, and gender studies, to respond to and reflect on the issues of modernity, hybridity, public sphere, cultural translation, and identification in the current field of Chinese studies.
