Preconference: Working with Web-based Collections and Filmic Sources

  1. Working with web-based collections and other sources
    Mark Loughrey, Nursing History Scholar; Diarmuid Stokes, College Librarian, UCD
  2. Nursing Care in Film: Methodological Approaches to Film as a Historic Resource for the History of Nursing through the Lens of Nursing Care on the Battlefield
    Karen Nolte

The pre-conference workshop examines web-based and filmic source for researching the history of nursing and healthcare. The first part is facilitated by Mark Loughrey and Diarmuid Stokes and examines historical collections available in a searchable online format. It includes a demonstration and discussion of the Irish Nursing Journals Collection, a digital archive containing 398 journal issues in a single online searchable collection, dating from 1925. The second part is facilitated by Karen Nolte and examines the use of filmic archives as a source for researching nursing history, with a particular focus on how nursing care is represented in films. It analyses the functions of representations of nursing and nurses in war films and the iconographical and filmic traditions these representations evoke.
