Jennifer L. Derr is a historian whose scholarship explores the intersections among medicine, science, the environment, and capitalism in the modern Middle East and North Africa. At Radcliffe, she will write a book tracing the history of liver disease in Egypt and what it reveals about the histories of biomedicine in the Global South, the formation of the American biomedical empire, and the entanglements among biomedicine, the environment, and the trajectories of capitalism.
