Call for Papers: UKAHN Bulletin 2021

The 2021 issue of the UKHAN Bulletin will break new ground this year. For the first time we will focus on the history of nurses from Black, Asian, and other ethnic communities. The issue will pull together a collection of articles from around the world which discuss the experiences of nurses from such communities in a historical context, particularly in a colonial/post-colonial context. It will include a mix of already published and new work, full-length articles, and shorter articles on work in progress and book reviews. Just as importantly, the issue will focus on work produced by authors from these same backgrounds, offering a platform to authors whose work is underrepresented. The result will be a significant collection for writers and researchers both familiar with and new to the field.

Karen Flynn (Associate Professor in the Departments of Gender and Women's Studies and African-American Studies at University of Illinois), who has written about the history of Black women and healthcare in several contexts, will guest edit the issue.

If you would like to contribute to the issue there is still time to submit a proposal, either for a work already published or a new piece. You can find guidelines for publishing in the Bulletin here:

Deadlines for final submission are 30 April 2021 for long articles and 30 May 2021 for other types of submission.
