Title: China Confidential: Ethical & Methodological Challenges of Conducting International Historical Nursing Research
Abstract: Researchers poised to commence work on the as-yet-unwritten history of American missionary nurses in China ought to be mindful of a growing expectation that serious research on China missions must go beyond the conventional reliance on English-language data generation and interpretation for an English-speaking audience. Building on my ongoing research on the role of missionary nurses in the development of modern nursing in China, and based on a series of interviews recently conducted in China of participants with ties to a former Canadian mission hospital, this seminar explores ethical and methodological challenges of international and intercultural historical research in nursing.
