Biographical details

Professor Trudy Rudge is a trained Registered Nurse and academic with a background and interest in anthropology and sociology. Her research focuses on the application of social sciences and the humanities to nursing knowledge. Her work covers three broad areas: (a)analysis of nurses’ work and its organization (b) ethnographic analyses of nursing work and (c) embodiment: i.e. conceptualizing the body in nursing and social sciences. “My aim is to make nurses’ work visible” says Professor Rudge “the studies I perform help improve our understanding of how nurses perform their work and how they relate to one another and with their organization. I am interested in the politics of nursing work, particularly with regards to night work. Also, since my PhD work on the ethnography of the wound dressing procedure in burns care, I have had a long-standing interest in skin and embodiment.” Importantly, Professor Rudge is working toward bringing into the curriculum for nursing practice and research, an understanding of society and the nature of nursing work. She has, in collaboration with Associate Professor Sandra West, developed a research group (Society + Work in Nursing) exploring how the social and work figure in nursing. This group is gaining a strong international reputation in the field. She was a chief investigator of a research consultancy for NSW Health and NSW Nurses Association, on Nurses Night Work. Professor Rudge is co-author of two books, the first called ‘Abjectly Boundless’ exploring the concept of abjection, which is often silenced in health care. The second book ‘(Re) Thinking Violence in Health Care Settings’, has been called “a work of unprecedented importance” by the Editor of the journal Advances in Nursing Science.

Research interests

Professor Rudge’s interests include social analysis of nursing, science and technology studies in nursing, and histories of nursing and its present. Her core areas of interest are: (i) the analysis of nurses’ work and its organization, which combines expertise on embodiment, ethnographic studies and organizational studies to explore nurses’ work and its organization; (ii) nursing as textually mediated practice: involves analyses of nurses’ work using ethnographic and contemporary forms of textually mediated analysis, to demonstrate the nursing workplace as dynamic and rapidly-changing, where the effects of change resulting from policy implementation and new technologies are constant and affect not only the users of the system but also the nursing workplace; (iii) Body work and nursing: involves conceptualization of the body in nursing and social sciences.

Her research covers wide-ranging topics, e.g. exploring the social issues of body shopping in medical tourism, the social impact of waiting in cancer treatment, nursing development in a forensic hospital setting and learning the work of nursing. In addition, the Society + Work in Nursing Research Group has established strong links with sociologists and others researching in the area of migration of nurses; and in organizational ethnography through the annual seminar into Ethnography in the Social and Management Sciences.
