‘Nursing Clio – Because the Personal is Historical’

http://nursingclio.org/mission-statement/

This is a very interesting, forthright and varied ‘peer-reviewed’ blog which takes on some challenging subjects..

“Men’s and women’s bodies, their reproductive rights, and their healthcare are often at the center of social, cultural, and political debates. Our tagline – The Personal is Historical – is meant to convey that the issues that dominate today’s headlines are, in fact, ongoing dialogues that reach far back into our country’s past.

The mission of Nursing Clio is to provide a platform for historians, health care workers, community activists, students, and the public at large to engage in socio-political and cultural critiques of this ongoing and historical dialogue regarding the gendered body, the history of medicine, popular culture, current events, and other issues that catch our attention. Nursing Clio provides a coherent, intelligent, informative, and fun historical source for the consideration of these topics.” Text from website http://nursingclio.org/mission-statement/
