CFP: Routledge Handbook series on History of Nursing

We have been given to opportunity by Routledge, a prestigious and global publisher to create an edited volume that captures both the state of the art scholarship in new areas of the history of nursing, and that invites readers to consider new understandings of the historical work and worth of nursing in a larger and more global context.

This opportunity comes at a perfect moment as our field has become increasingly important to historians exploring the global circulation of ideas about the care of the sick; about gender and the valuation of care work; about the intersections of lay and professional care; and about the actual practice of care work in different settings and contexts ranging from homes to hospitals to battlefields.

This edited collection would join Routledge’s Handbook… series: books on a range of topics capturing state of the art thinking and scholarship in discrete areas.

We are looking for scholars to participate in this project. The only criterion is that your work be new (not published elsewhere) and that it contain a discussion of its place in the current historiography of your topic. We welcome inquiries from all disciplines that use nursing or nursing care as a vehicle for exploring larger historical issues.
To propose a chapter idea, please email Julie Fairman and Patricia D’Antonio, Barbara Bates Center for the Study of the History of Nursing, University of Pennsylvania ( who will co-edit this volume.
