Nursing Clio will be on break until January to work on some new and exciting plans for 2016 — and get some rest.
It’s been a big year for us here at Nursing Clio. We relaunched back in May with a shiny new website and renewed mission to bring you stories linking the past and the present, commentary on gender and history in the news, and new content like Versing Clio.
We’ve also been excited to welcome some new voices to the Nursing Clio team. I’m continually amazed I get to work with these fabulous people every week. A whole lot of work goes into each and every Nursing Clio post: from the hard-working author who writes it, to the dedicated editors who work with our writers to make their work shine on the site. And behind it all, the daily search for new content and all the footwork it takes to stay on top of news week in and week out. All to bring you new ideas and perspectives on how the past shapes our everyday worlds, and free of charge, too.
When you have a minute, consider reaching out to our editors and writers to let us know if Nursing Clio is important to you. It means so much when we hear from you, our readers, and our community.
Now for a little retrospective. Here are the top six most-read articles from 2015:
- Same-Sex Marriage Does Threaten “Traditional” Marriage
- Premature Birth and the Right to Grieve
- Ghosts are Scary, Disabled People are Not: The Troubling Rise of the Haunted Asylum
- Milk Sharing: What History Can Teach Us
- Parenting in Academia: New Mom + Nursing + Academic Conference = Weekend in Hell
- Outlander: A Story for Historians
We look forward to keeping up this variety of commentary, history, and analysis of pop culture in the new year.
See you in January!
We return from break in January 2016 with an exciting lineup. Tune in for up coming posts on gun control, sexual identity and human rights, and a review of PBS’s Mercy Street.
Now if you’ll excuse me, there’s a plate of cookies and a pot of coffee calling. Have a happy New Year, and see you in 2016!
