I’m in the lovely Roman city of Chester today to present at the UK Association for the History of Nursing Colloquium.  My paper “‘And if they are to be men or Women’: Nursing on late-18th Century British Hospital Ships” considers the decision to employ women as nurses on British navy hospital ships and convalescent ships in the eighteenth century.  Specifically to showcase the role of women in these floating medical institutions.

The programme for the colloquium is available here.
