Nursing History and Humanities

Book cover of Curing Queers

About the series

The Nursing History and Humanities series is devoted both to historical approaches and humanities perspectives: work that explores nursing cultures over time and place, in moments of pandemic and public health crisis and in creative and critical contexts.  The series aims to capture the current challenges facing nursing in local and global spaces, even as our books continue to document the long historical trajectories of the profession in structural and organisational terms.

The only book series devoted exclusively to nursing pursuits in the world, the editors welcome scholarly manuscripts within and across the fields of nursing history, nationally and internationally, the medical humanities and health studies of nursing practice, and the social histories of race, gender, and sexuality as they pertain to the nursing profession. At the intersection of practice-based clinical nursing and rigorous cultural examinations of nursing, the series provides a forum for nurses, medical practitioners, historians, philosophers, and cultural critics to present new research.

Series editors:  Christine Hallett, University of Huddersfield and Jane Schultz, Indiana University
