From Maggots to Matrons: Rituals and Myths in Nursing

 
  5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

From maggots to matrons, enemas to egg white and oxygen, generations of nurses reminisce about a profession steeped in tradition.

Claire Laurent’s Rituals & Myths in Nursing: A Social History, (Pen & Sword, 2019) explores the history behind those rituals, challenges the more absurd and celebrates the increasing complexity of the job that is nursing.

The talk will be followed by a drinks reception and book signing.

Cost: Free of Charge
