In this free lecture on Tuesday 13 April, 2:30pm, Dr Jonathan Memel will explore how young Nightingale’s charitable visits to working-class cottages inspired her longstanding mission to improve the living conditions of working people in Britain. He will consider her bestseller Notes on Nursing (1860) alongside her subsequent attempts to popularise sanitary discourse and embed health concerns in the home.
