jonathan.harper [at] mail.mcgill.ca

Research Interests

My main areas of research are the histories of modern surgery and psychiatry. Topics of interest to me include periods of therapeutic transition, interactions between societal and medical discourses, marginalized or stigmatized patient populations, and the relationship between mainstream and peripheral forms of medical practice. While much of my current research focuses on Canada, I also have research experience and an abiding interest in healthcare in mainland China as well as global health more broadly.
