Description

New histories of living will host pathbreaking research which explores the manifold ways that the home has been thought about, utilized and lived within throughout history. These perspectives open the shutters on domesticity, by showing how patterns of homemaking can reshape our conceptions of kinship, consumption and the everyday.

Provisional conference programme and abstracts

The conference will take place over two days and is separated into four interrelated avenues of enquiry:
  • Reconstructions: imagining domestic experience
  • Dream Homes: Envisioning alternate futures for residential experience
  • Rooms: Furnishing the idiosyncrasies of private life
  • Home-work: Reframing gendered spaces

Confirmed plenary speakers:
  • Jane Hamlett (Royal Holloway)
  • Dan Cruickshank (Art historian and BBC presenter)
  • Owen Hatherley (Architectural historian and journalist)
  • Vanessa Harding (Birkbeck)
