As part of the project we are organising two series of events: academic workshops with a historical focus, and discussion forums for nurses and others interested in contemporary nursing and care practices, using Nightingale's life and ideas as a starting point.
In 2020, a travelling exhibition will commence at the Lakeside Arts Centre at the University of Nottingham - watch this space for updates.
On 10 April 2019 we will be running some Nightingale-themed sessions at the University's History Festival - come and say hello!
Visit the History Festival webpage for more details and to download a programme.
Our first workshop, entitled 'Locating Health' and focusing on regional histories of health in the period 1800-1948, took place on 11 January 2019 at the University of Nottingham. If you are interested to find out more about the contents, you can read the review of the day published on the medical humanities website thepolyphony.org. The conference website and call for papers are archived in the University's website.
Future workshops will be advertised via our blog page, so please do sign up for updates!
Nursing Discussion Forums
Our first discussion forum will take place in September 2019, on the theme of creative reflection in nursing. This is being run in conjunction with the UNESCO Nottingham City of Literature programme and the Royal Literary Fund, and will link up with the University of Nottingham’s Graduate Entry nursing programme. The call for submissions/participation in the first event will go out in late May. Look out for updates on our blog.
