Since 2018 the project team has been working on a new book, Florence Nightingale at Home, which will be published by Palgrave Macmillan in October 2020. It is available to preorder via the following links:
The book uses the theme of home as a way in to approaching various aspects of Nightingale's life and work. 'Home' was a key concept in Victorian Britain, and it affected the way Nightingale thought about nursing, healthcare, spirituality, the British Empire, marriage and much else besides.
The four talks here give a flavour of our approach - and of the many fascinating nuggets of information contained in the book! A version of these talks was first presented at the 'Florence 2020' nursing history conference held in Florence, Italy, in February.
