American Association for the History of Nursing
Thirty-first Annual History of Nursing Conference
Storrs and Hartford, CT
September 18-21, 2014
The American Association for the History of Nursing and the University of Connecticut's School of Nursing, are co-sponsoring the Association's thirty-first annual conference to be held in Hartford and Storrs, CT. The conference provides a forum for researchers interested in sharing new research that addresses events, issues, and topics in any area of nursing and health care history broadly construed to encompass the history of nursing, global nursing history, nursing practice, health care institutions, caring, illness, healing work and public health. Submissions pertaining to all areas and regions of the world are welcome. Papers and posters that expand the horizons of nursing and health care history and engage related fields such as women's, labor, technology, and economic history and race and gender studies are encouraged. While not the focus of the entire conference yet in recognition of the sesquicentennial of the US Civil War and the centennial anniversary of World War I, proposals for papers centering on nursing’s participation in and experiences during military conflicts are also encouraged. Individual papers, posters, and panel presentations are featured at the conference. Additional information about AAHN and the conference can be obtained at www.aahn.org.
