Call for Proposals: How Did Nursing Become Science? March 18, 2013

Posted by sandyclaus in Annual Meeting, Call For Papers.

Proposed panel session at History of Science Society’s annual meeting,
21-24 November 2013, Boston, MA, USA http://www.hssonline.org/Meeting/
Emerging as a clinical practice in the mid-nineteenth century with the
development of formal hospital apprentice programs and hospital diploma
nursing programs, clinical nursing eventually shifted its education to
college and university degree programs in the twentieth century. The
professionalization of academic nursing, initially through doctoral
degrees in education and social science, created a field for practices and
discourses claiming space and epistemic authority as a unique nursing
science (allied with but distinct from life sciences, social sciences, and
medicine). This multidisciplinary panel will examine the development of
nursing science in the twentieth century. Interested scholars should
contact Thomas Lawrence Long, Center for Nursing Scholarship, School of
Nursing, University of Connecticut,
thomas.l.long@uconn.edu<mailto:thomas.l.long@uconn.edu> with a one-page
proposal and a one-page vita, by March 28.
