Canadian Association for the History of Nursing/Association Canadienne pour líHistoire du Nursing
15-17 June 2012, Medicine Hat, Alberta
The 2012 Annual CAHN/ACHN Conference, to be held in Medicine Hat, Alberta on June 15-17, marks the 25th anniversary of our association. Founded in 1987, CAHN/ACHN has an ongoing commitment to stimulate and promote historical scholarship of nursing and health. We are pleased to invite you to this conference.
The conference theme is: Places and Peopleís Health: Exploring Nursing in Diverse Contexts. We welcome papers that explore diversity and contingency of nursing knowledge and practice. Aiming at a critical understanding of connections between place and practice, the conference seeks to examine the history of nursing and health care in diverse geographic, social, and political contexts, including rural and remote locations, specialty areas, and various communities. How did communities engage with health politics or respond to professional claims? What tensions arose as health services had to be established or transformed and professional identities changed? How did nurses pioneer new practice domains? How did local, regional, and global contexts of health care shape nursing? Abstracts addressing other questions are also welcome.
The conference will bring together scholars, professionals, and students from different fields and various areas of nursing and health care history. Longstanding members are especially invited to attend.
Please submit your one page abstract (350 words max.) and one page CV for consideration by Dec. 1, 2011 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions by email are strongly encouraged. If submitting by mail, please send one original and 3 blind copies to Geertje Boschma, UBC School of Nursing, T201 2211 Wesbrook Mall, Vancouver V6T 2B5, Canada. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed. Notification of acceptance will be sent out in Feb. 2012. All presenters must be members of CAHN/ACHN.
