Speaker: Madeline Reckart
Date and Time: March 27, 12:00pm to 1:30pm in Room 2019, Floor 2U, Claire Fagin Hall
Abstract: This seminar aims to situate women’s roles in health care during violence in Uganda in the 1970s. The focal point is the work of Catholic missionaries as sister nurses, midwives, and physicians in Uganda after the dismantling of empires. The seminar brings together an understanding of the social context of mission medicine and nursing in Uganda, specifically with the goal of examining how religious women worked during periods of violence and war. It examines the lived reality of missionary work on the ground where sisters actually administered health care. Click Here to RSVP.
