Subject: Blog: Nursing Clio
I would like to announce our blog, Nursing Clio, to H-Amstdy.

“Nursing Clio is a collaborative blog project that ties historical
scholarship to present-day political, social, and cultural issues
surrounding gender and medicine. Men’s and women’s bodies, their
reproductive rights, and their health care are often at the center of
political debate and have also become a large part of the social and
cultural discussions in popular media. Whether the topic is abortion, birth
control, sex, or the pregnant body, each and every one of these issues is
embedded with historical dynamics of race, class, and gender. Our tagline –
The Personal is Historical – is meant to convey that the medical debates
that dominate today’s headlines are, in fact, ongoing dialogues that reach
far back into our country’s past.

The mission of Nursing Clio is to provide a platform for historians, health
care workers, community activists, students, and the public at large to
engage in socio-political and cultural critiques of this ongoing and
historical debate over the gendered body. It is our contention that Nursing
Clio will provide a coherent, intelligent, informative, and fun historical
source for these issues.”

We look forward to H-Amstdy subscribers to come and take a look, and even
make some comments.

Best wishes,
Cheryl Lemus
