Class Experience

My BA is in political studies though I've also done addition university study on theology. Furthermore, I am a bookworm that cannot stop with reading just one book about a topic. Instead I have to follow faint connections, digging out who a person's influential contemporaries were and how a topic is reflected in the literature that comes later. I believe it is important when learning about a person to not just read about the person directly but to read about their time period and the political and philosophical movements of their era.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class will include discussion of a military hospital and the problems faced there. There will be mention of drunkenness, amputations and disease.
Students will not require any resources.

The information presented in this class has been gathered from a multitude of sources including many, many academic articles as well as the following books:
Bullough, Bullough, B., & Stanton, M. P. (1990). Florence Nightingale and her era : a collection of new scholarship. Garland Publishing.
Jenkins. (1995). Reclaiming myths of power : women writers and the Victorian spiritual crisis. Bucknell University Press.
Small. (1999). Florence Nightingale : avenging angel. St. Martin’s Press.
