 Call for Abstracts

Brains, Guts and Gumption: Historical Perspectives on Nursing Education, Practice and Entrepreneurship

The 2016 CAHN/ACHN International Nursing History Conference will be held in Vancouver, Canada, 16-18 June 2016

Exploring connections between health, nursing and leadership, the conference welcomes papers that analyze the various ways in which nurses have negotiated their roles as educators, practitioners or entrepreneurs, testing new paths of work and practice as the context of health care changed and demanded new responses. Questions of education, practice, health policy and power will be examined, looking at critical areas of nursing’s past. How did nurses negotiate new domains of work, authority and knowledge? What tensions arose over claims of knowledge, quality training, skill and professional identity? Abstracts on other topics are also welcome.

The CAHN-ACHN Hannah Lecture will be given by Dr. Linda Bryder, Professor, University of Auckland, New Zealand. The Title of Dr. Bryder’s presentation is: Multiple Pathways to Nursing History Scholarship

The conference brings together scholars, professionals, and students internationally and from many different fields. Abstracts from students are especially welcome.

Please submit a one page abstract (350 words max.) and a one page CV for consideration. State the title of the submission at the top, then list name, credentials, institutional affiliation or city, contact and e-mail information. Submit two copies of your abstract; one must include the author and contact information. Indicate if submission is a paper, panel or e-poster (to be presented in electronic poster format) presentation. If more than one author is listed, indicate the name of the contact person. The second copy should include title and presentation type with no other identifying information. Abstracts must be no longer than one page, with one inch margins all around.

Multiple Pathways to Nursing History Scholarship

Scholarship in the history of nursing has commonly emerged from the academic discipline of nursing studies and from nursing history networks. Yet, multiple paths can lead to nursing history scholarship. In this talk I will explain my own pathway, which has been quite different. From the time of my doctoral studies in Oxford, when my intellectual home was the Welcome Unit for the History of Medicine, my field of study has been defined as the social history of medicine. Yet, through each of my major projects within the discipline, whether it be tuberculosis, paediatrics, or childbirth, nurses consistently emerged centre stage, in some instances even influencing medical decisions and health policies. For instance, nurses were integral to the introduction of BCG vaccination for tuberculosis in Britain in the 1940s. New Zealand’s world-famous infant health organisation, the Plunket Society, is usually considered synonymous with its medical founder, Sir Frederic Truby King, and yet I found that it was nurses who accounted for the expansion and success of this particular organisation. In my study of New Zealand’s National Women’s Hospital – an institution set up explicitly to train doctors and not midwives – I soon came to realise that midwives and maternity nurses formed the bedrock of services provided. It therefore seemed logical to become involved in leading a major nursing oral history project, to hear the nurses’ own stories. It is my contention that nursing history should not be considered separately from the social or cultural history of health and medicine, but as an integral part of it. In this talk I will discuss that personal voyage as well as discuss the project in which nurses are the narrators.

Dr. Linda Bryder is Professor of History at the University of Auckland, where she teaches and publishes in the history of health and medicine, focusing primarily on Britain and New Zealand. Her research interests include the history of tuberculosis, infant and child health, childbirth, reproductive health and nursing history. Her DPhil at the University of Oxford on the history of tuberculosis was published as Below the Magic Mountain: A Social History of Tuberculosis in Twentieth-century Britain (1988). Her other sole-authored books include A Voice for Mothers: the Plunket Society and Infant Welfare in New Zealand, 2007-2000 (Auckland University Press, 2003), Women’s Bodies and Medical Science: An Inquiry into Cervical Cancer (Palgrave Macmillan, 2010), and The Rise and Fall of National Women’s Hospital, A History (Auckland University Press, 2014). In 2013 she jointly edited with Janet Greenlees, Western Maternity and Medicine, 1880-1990 (Pickering & Chatto). She was recently Principal Investigator on a two-year nursing oral history project funded by New Zealand’s Nursing Education and Research Foundation. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand.
