Beyond the Bedside: Nursing Narratives of World War I and World War II (NeMLA 2014)
45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 3-6, 2014
Host: Susquehanna University
Through examinations of personal narratives, this transnational panel seeks a broader understanding of nurses’ experiences during WWI and WWII, particularly those which push past gendered stereotypes of nurses as caregivers and passive witnesses to soldiers’ trauma. It will examine nurses’ representations of WWI and WII, and is specifically concerned with their experiences as they entered the gendered hierarchy of the military and encountered the violence and carnage of war. It seeks papers on autobiographical narratives, including letters, diaries, autobiography, memoir, and oral histories. International texts welcome; papers are to be presented in English. Please send 300 word abstracts and CV to Ravenel Richardson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: September 30, 2013
Please include with your abstract:

A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee with registration)
