Thanks to a fruitful cooperation between our association, the European Association for the History of Nursing, the Canadian Association for the History of Nursing and the Consortium for Nursing History Inquiry, UBC-V School of Nursing, we were able to propose a Symposium titled: Teaching nursing history through photographs: between realities, cultural constructions and social idealisations.
Through the realisation of a short video, the European Association for the History of Nursing presented a small sweep of image history. The video presented five historical photographs in five different contexts of the history of our profession, presented by five different experts from five different countries. (Italy, Spain, Israel, Ireland and The Netherlands).It was a great and enthusiastic experience and a cooperation full of ideas and new possibilities.
Here’s the video, enjoy.
