Harry Yi-Jui Wu MD.DPhil

I am a historian of medicine teaching at Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong. My current projects mainly focus on the transnational histories of mental health. My first book, Mad by the Millions: Mental Disorders and the Early Years of the World Health Organization, will be published by MIT Press in 2021. Over the years, my research interests have also reached out to other areas of non-infectious diseases. I have begun to explore the relationship between hazard exposure and health. 

Besides research, I am now Director of Medical Ethics and Humanities Unit at the Faculty of Medicine. In 2020, I was elected Early Career Fellow of Hong Kong Academy of Humanities. From 2021, I will be teaching at newly established Department of Medical Humanities and Social Medicine and the Cross-College Elite Program of National Cheng-Kung University, Taiwan.

我是一位醫學史學者,畢業於台灣中山醫學大學。於牛津大學衛康醫療史研究中心畢業後,曾於星、港任職數年,目前擔任香港大學李嘉誠醫學院的醫學倫理及人文學部總監及助理教授。我的研究聚焦於精神醫療的跨國史。英文新作《群瘋:精神疾病和世界衛生組織的早年歲月》即將於2021年出版。目前除了延續這本著作關切內容在東亞所衍伸的課題之外,我也涉足非傳染病的歷史,以及人文學在醫學教育中的實踐。詳細的學術成果請參照本網頁其他欄目。2021年,我即將赴國立成功大學全校不分系,以及新成立的社會醫學科任教。歡迎來信交流指教。
