Call for Proposals in a New Book Series

Nursing History: Narratives for the Twenty-First Century

This series features nurses as critical actors in driving social, cultural, professional, and clinical changes while delivering health care. Offering fresh and well-researched approaches to nursing history, books in the series will seek to engage a readership both within and beyond academe. The primarily focus will be on books intended for understanding and teaching the importance of the history of nursing for all students and scholars in health care in and beyond the classroom.

Books in the series will place nurses and nursing within significant contexts to illustrate the professions’ engagement in critical social issues and movements of the last century. In many ways, this perspective will challenge what we already know about this period, as it has typically been seen through the eyes of the history of medicine, science, public health, and technology.

Book proposals must conform to the guidelines of the publisher, the Johns Hopkins University Press. Queries should be sent to nhistory@nursing.upenn.edu with the subject heading “Hopkins Proposal.” Final books manuscripts should be no longer than 80,000 to 90,000 words and may include up to twenty illustrations. Books appearing in the series will be published simultaneously in print and electronic options.
