Age, Gender and Domestic Culture

3 July 2004

Royal Holloway, University of London
(a joint symposium organized by the Bedford Centre for the History of
Women, Royal Holloway College, University of London, and CSDI)

This one-day interdisciplinary symposium will address the importance of age
and gender to domestic culture in historical and contemporary communities.
The event aims to facilitate broad discussion across disciplines, bringing
together social, cultural and design historians, anthropologists and
sociologists from a range of national and international universities
working on a variety of domestic environments. The event seeks to encourage
comparisons between research approaches and also between the domestic
cultures of different periods and different social groups. The themes that
will be addressed include the experience of old age and the concept of
home; the construction and experience of childhood; the relationships
between paid and unpaid members of a household; age, gender and the
representation of domestic settings; and changing roles and authority
within domestic environments according to lifecycle and gender.

A programme, booking forms and further information will be posted shortly
on the Bedford Centre website (www.rhul.ac.uk/bedford-centre) and CSDI
website (www.rca.ac.uk/csdi). Please contact Beverley Duguid,
bedford.centre@ rhul.ac.uk (tel: +44 (0)1784 414 098) for further details.

Literature and the Domestic Interior
Symposium
Call for Papers

23 October 2004
Victoria & Albert Museum, London


'Think of a kitchen table then', he told her, 'when you're not there'. Woolf

'The interior furniture of houses appeared together with the interior
furniture of minds.' Lukacs

Ideas and descriptions of the home figure widely in literature. The
domestic interior frequently provides either subject or context of
narrative whether in drama, poetry or fiction. Metaphors referring to the
domestic interior proliferate, and claims for their significance are
widespread. This one-day conference will explore different instances of the
literary representation of the domestic interior in writing from 1400 to
the present. This event is part of an ongoing initiative at the AHRB Centre
for the Study of the Domestic Interior to develop and support an
interdisciplinary community of postgraduates and scholars working in fields
related to the domestic interior.

Papers might address one or more of the following themes:

The psychological interior
Literature and illustration
Imagining the historical interior
Realism and the interior
Theatre and the domestic interior
