Keynote speaker: Dr. Kathryn McPherson, Associate Professor in Gender, Feminist and Women’s History at York University and author of the seminal text Bedside Matters: The Transformation of Canadian Nursing, 1900-1990.
In her lecture “Learning Across Borders: Nursing Education, Practice, and Transnational Migration in the Long-20th Century,” McPherson speaks to the way recent international scholarship in nursing history has helped us think more critically about the divisions within nursing education – how questions of nursing education have been caught up in larger political and cultural debates about skill, gender, nationalism, and religion.
Panel Discussion: UBC Scholars Dr. Veronica Strong-Boag, Dr. Sally Thorne, and Assistant Professor Emerita Ethel Warbinek will give a response as a lead-in to discussion with the audience about the future, promise, and persistent challenges of nursing education and academic nursing programs.
After lunch the program will continue with a presentation of e-posters from students and scholars.
This event is hosted by the UBC School of Nursing’s Consortium for Nursing History Inquiry.
