From Personality to Profession:
The Florence Nightingale Museum and the history of nursing
Natasha McEnroe, Director of The Florence Nightingale Museum (London, UK) will discuss the role of "personality museums" in the sphere of medical history. Such museums can play a dual purpose, in this instance raising awareness of the medical past, but also acting as a point of coalescence for professional groups. These groups often share a strong emotional attachment to a historical figure, and nowhere can this be seen more strongly than with Florence Nightingale and nursing. Managing these relationships poses a challenge; how does a museum maintain a balanced, objective historical perspective while also navigating the cult of celebrity?
