Les infirmières en guerre

Beyond the Bedside: Nursing Narratives of World War I and World War II

Call for participation

45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 3-6, 2014
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Host: Susquehanna University

Through examinations of personal narratives, this transnational panel seeks a broader understanding of nurses’ experiences during WWI and WWII, particularly those which push past gendered stereotypes of nurses as caregivers and passive witnesses to soldiers’ trauma. It will examine nurses’ representations of WWI and WII, and is specifically concerned with their experiences as they entered the gendered hierarchy of the military and encountered the violence and carnage of war. It seeks papers on autobiographical narratives, including letters, diaries, autobiography, memoir, and oral histories. International texts welcome; papers are to be presented in English. Please send 300 word abstracts and CV to Ravenel Richardson at

Deadline: September 30, 2013

Please include with your abstract:
  • Name and Affiliation 
  • Email address 
  • Postal address 
  • Telephone number
  • A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee with registration)
