    Chicago Open Archives - Nurses: Beyond the 4x6 Image

    Join us to hear a talk by Dr. Brigid Lusk, a nurse historian and Director of UIC's Midwest Nursing History Research Center, about the NLM traveling exhibit, Pictures of Nursing: The Zwerdling Postcard Collection, which will be on display in Special Collections and University Archives at the Library of the Health Sciences-Chicago from September 18 through October 6. Pictures of Nursing depicts the history of nursing through multiple lenses and a variety of visual styles, investigating the hold these images exert on the public imagination—then and now. These images of nurses and nursing are informed by cultural values; ideas about women, men, and work; and attitudes toward class, race, and national differences. By documenting the relationship of nursing to significant forces in 20th-century life, such as war and disease, these postcards reveal how nursing was seen during those times.
