Jewish Studies and Great Books Fall 2022 Zoom Webinar | Thursday, Oct. 13, 2022 | 11 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.


In previous work, Tyler Gaedecke reconsidered Whitman’s experiences, influences, and identity through a lens that captured him as a “queer nurse.” This presentation will outline and describe that analysis with the opportunity to revisit its strengths, weaknesses, and utility for understanding Whitman as a historical figure and investigating the nursing profession’s history more broadly. Tyler Gaedecke, BSN, RN (he/him/his) is a nurse beginning his Ph.D. in Nursing at Columbia University School of Nursing in the fall of 2022. Following his education in Nursing and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Virginia, he practiced as a critical care nurse and sought additional training at George Washington University in LGBT Health Policy and Practice. His research interests include LGBTQ+ health issues (especially those faced by transgender, non-binary, and gender-expansive individuals), health services research, scope of practice, power and relationships in healthcare, and health policy.
