Jean-Philip Mathieu is a PhD candidate at McGill University. His dissertation uses a case study of Montreal Rolling Mills, a major secondary iron and steel producer in the second half of the nineteenth century, to examine the relationship between the joint-stock corporation, the rise of Montreal's bourgeoisie, and the formation of the Canadian state.  He is also passionate about the public history of Montreal, giving historical tours in non-pandemic years, and acting as a consultant for the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.
