History of Children meets the History of Nursing

I’m very excited to be invited by Dr. Geertje Boschma from the Consortium for Nursing History Inquiry, School of Nursing at the University of British Columbia, to present to their Nursing History Symposium, on November 20th, 2014.  My talk will focus on how the history of children and childhood might inform the history of nursing. Shifts in attitudes towards children and their medical treatment over the 19th and 20th centuries profoundly affected nurses and their practice. My talk will bring some of this to light.  For more information about the day, please see the poster linked here: Nursing History Symposium Nov 20, 2014
