About this blog
This AHRC-funded research project will produce a more complex historical and literary understanding of Florence Nightingale by mapping her family and home connections to Derbyshire, and analysing how her regional experiences impacted her career, attitudes, and writings. A joint venture between the University of Nottingham’s School of Health Sciences and Department of History, the project also investigates what Nightingale’s life and work reveals about the health history and cultural life of the Victorian Midlands. It is timed to coincide with national celebrations of Nightingale’s bicentenary in 2020.
