"Gender and the history of nursing" to be held at Glasgow Caledonian University on 1 April 2011 21 Feb 2011

This colloquium brings together scholars working in the history of nursing, and as such is a successor to the symposia in the history of nursing previously sponsored solely by the UK Centre for the History of Nursing and Midwifery. The particular theme of this year's event is gender in nursing history, an area which has received surprisingly little systematic attention. As such, the intention is to open up the history of nursing to the sort of investigation and analysis commonly employed in other branches of historical study. In this respect it is also worth stressing the collaborative nature of this project which will, hopefully, provide a platform for future cross-institutional/centre events of this kind. The organisers are especially keen to encourage graduate students working in the field and part of the present bid is for small bursaries to cover travel and/or accommodation.

'Urban Health in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries' seminar series to be held in 2008 at Glasgow Caledonian University. 19 Dec 2007

This is the second 'themed' seminar series to be organized by the CSHHH; and the success of that held in autumn 2007 attests to the validity of this approach. For spring 2008 the broad theme is 'urban health in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries', an important issue which nonetheless has not been dealt with in any systematic way in recent Scottish conferences/seminar series. The notion of 'urban health' has been broadly construed and this has enabled us to bring to the series a group of historians with differing research and publication interests, but whose work nonetheless has much to tell us about health and social conditions, and the treatment of 'problems' in these areas, in the towns and cities of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Seminar Series:'Religion, Health and Welfare in Europe from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Centuries' to be held at Glasgow Caldeonian University 2007-08. 18 Jul 2007

Seminar Series: 'Religion, Health and Welfare in Europe from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Centuries', Glasgow Caledonian University, 4 meetings, Semester A, 2007-08 This is an application under the Symposia scheme from Professor John Stewart, CSHHH, School of Law and Social Sciences, Glasgow Caledonian University, for £857 towards a seminar series to be held at Glasgow Caledonian University (Semester A, 2007-2008). The seminar series is entitled 'Religion, Health and Welfare in Europe from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Centuries' and it will consist of four meetings. The general aim of the series is to have scholarly discussions - open to members of academic staff, postgraduate and postdoctoral students, and undergraduate students from the host universities (Glasgow Caledonian University and the University of Strathclyde) and throughout Central Scotland - led by invited speakers. The invited speakers are at different career stages which is a strength. It is also a strength that the seminar series will result in a publication. Finally, the series will help the CSHHH establish itself as a centre for the history of medicine (it will help 'capacity building'). An award of £857 is recommended.
