CFP: Colonial, Post-Colonial Nursing

Call for Papers: History of Colonial and Post-Colonial Nursing, July 4, 2013 Oxford, United Kingdom

The UK Association for the History of Nursing Colloquium will be held on 4 July 2013 at the History Faculty, University of Oxford. This year’s theme will explore the ‘History of Colonial and Post-Colonial Nursing’. The history of nursing presents a unique perspective from which to interrogate colonialism and post-colonialism. Simultaneously, viewing nursing’s development under colonial and post-colonial rule can reveal the different faces of what, on the surface may appear to be a profession that is consistent and coherent yet in reality has many different faces and is constantly in the process of reinventing itself. Considering such areas as transnational relationships, class, gender, race, and politics this colloquium aims to present current work in progress within this field to better understand the complex entanglements in the development of nursing as it was imagined and practised in local imperial, colonial and post-colonial contexts.

The colloquium will be led by Dr Helen Sweet and will be opened with a keynote paper on the colloquium’s theme by Professor Anne Marie Rafferty. Please submit abstracts of approximately 250 words, by Friday 1 February 2013, to: Christine.Hallett@manchester.ac.uk

N.B. As this promises to be a particularly popular colloquium and the audience capacity is strictly limited to max. 60 people, places will be allocated on a strictly ‘first come, first served’ basis so you are strongly advised to book early! Price: £10 for students and £15 for non-students.

There will also be a workshop for PhD students and their supervisors on Wednesday, 3 July, to be held at the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine, University of Oxford. All enquiries to: Christine.Hallett@manchester.ac.uk

Nursing History Conference (Berlin)

Contact: Dr. Bettina Blessing, bettina.blessing@igm-bosch.de  The conference is organized by the Institute for the History of Medicine of the Robert Bosch Foundation in Stuttgart and in cooperation with the Berlin Medical Historical Museum.

Over the past fifty years, nursing history has moved from studies with an institutional and biographical emphasis to those with more complex and critical evaluations of nursing practice. Following these developments, the theme of this conference is conflicts in nursing history. This can include difficulties between nurses and patients, clashes between nurses and doctors, conflicts between the nurses and hospital administrations and tensions between nurses. This conference will bring together scholars of nursing history from English and German speaking countries and aims to create a form for the development of comparative perspectives. The language of the conference will be English. Oral presentations should not exceed 20 minutes so as to allow for a thorough discussion. Please submit a one page abstract (of no more than 400 words) via e-mail by 24 November 2010.

CFP: Politics and Practices: The History of Post-war Women’s Health

Politics and Practices: The History of Post-war Women’s Health, 22nd-23rd October 2010, Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine, University of Manchester, Manchester UK

This two-day conference will bring together researchers interested in the history of post-war women’s health. In contrast to most histories of women’s health which focus on the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this conference aims to showcase research on the politics, policy and practice of women’s health after 1945, a much less studied yet dynamic era for women as patients, providers, caregivers, policy-makers, and activists. We invite proposals for individual papers of 20 minutes in length. We especially look forward to receiving proposals on the following themes:

  • – Women’s formal health care work: medical and nursing professionals, allied health workers
  • – Women’s informal provision of health care: home care, voluntary work
  • – Women as makers and objects of health policy in post-war states
  • – Women’s everyday health practices: self-care, pharmaceuticals, hygiene, prevention
  • – Sexual health/health and sexuality
  • – Reproductive health, reproduction, and mothering
  • – Mental health, institutions, and activism
  • – Women’s health activism and feminist health politics
  • – The gendering of self-help and the consumer health movement
  • – Women and biomedical research: standards, trials, consent practices
  • – “Female” diseases and their sufferers
  • – Women and post-war epidemics: AIDS and cancer
  • – Ageing and women’s health
  • – Intersections of biomedical and cultural narratives about femininity and womanhood

We particularly welcome submissions from postgraduate researchers. Bursaries to cover transportation and other costs for postgraduates may be available. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact the conference organisers, Dr Emma Jones ( emma.l.jones@manchester.ac.uk ) and Dr Elizabeth Toon ( elizabeth.toon@manchester.ac.uk ). Please submit paper proposals (300 words) to elizabeth.toon@manchester.ac.uk . The deadline for submission is 1 June 2010.
