Call for Papers
The Infirmary Conferences
University of Worcester, 9 July 2015
The UK Association for the History of Nursing, Research Colloquium will be held on 9 July 2015 at the Infirmary Museum, University of Worcester. We ask for papers that cover any aspect of nursing history, but focussing on work in progress. The Colloquium has a proud tradition of providing a supportive environment and space for researchers to present work in progress and obtain feedback for further development of their research.
The history of nursing is a well-established field of academic study, pursued both by nurse-historians and by researchers from other disciplines, including history itself, English literature and sociology to name a few. Its interdisciplinarity is reflected in the themes which run through nursing history conferences: gender and race studies, colonial history, transnational relationships, class, politics and international studies, in addition to the development of nursing science and practice.
Please submit abstracts of approximately 250 words, by Friday 20 March 2015, to: Dr Stuart Wildman firstname.lastname@example.org
Accommodation can be arranged at the University's campus, for more information, please contact Mark Macleod at The Infirmary on 01905 542373 or email@example.com
