Le travail des infirmières dans la Première Guerre Mondiale

Invisibility and Emotions - Nurses’ Work in World War One

21 - 22 November 2014, 9am - 6pm

The Rivers Suite, Edinburgh Napier University Craiglockhart Campus

From 1914-1918, nurses offered care in the midst of war. They healed shattered bodies, but also performed the equally vital, yet less visible task of containing the shattered emotions of traumatised soldiers. However, much of the work done by nurses at this time has gone un-noticed. We invite you to join us for a day of discussion and creative exploration of nurses’ work in WW1. Alongside traditional lectures and presentations, there will also be the opportunity to explore this aspect of history through creative writing and drama.

Keynote speakers are:

Yvonne McEwen - "Care-giving, Truth-telling and the Honourable Nurse in Warfare"

Professor Douglas Cairns - "Anger, Hatred and Sympathy: Why Everyone Should Read the Iliad"

Interactive workshops will be held on topics including : talking about trauma; creative methods for understanding history; and reading nurses' memoirs.

Cost: Delegate rate £50. Low income rate £30 (limited numbers available, please contact the event organisers to apply for a subsidised place)

Registration: Registration fee covers attendance at all presentations and workshops as well as refreshment breaks and lunch.
