This collection takes forward the debate about nineteenth-century domestic space. Most studies tend to focus on the feminized, middle-class "sphere," often using domestic guides and fictional representations of domesticity to generate their arguments. Essay topics include: the Abolitionist interior, childhood space, the consequences of Victorian gas lighting, and much more.
