Kyra Philbert in performance as Nurse Angelique

In Nurse Angélique: revisioning French Catholic nursing history as an ethical intervention in contemporary Canadian nursing practice Kyra interrogates nursing history through a Black feminist intersectional lens with sexuality as a key vector of analysis. She posits that the future of nursing benefits from being imagined beyond the current limits of what is considered “good” and “moral” nursing. Kyra was co-supervised by Dr. Lydia Wytenbroek and Dr. John Oliffe
