Time, Domesticity and Print Culture in Nineteenth-Century Britain

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportBogForskningfagfællebedømt

In this innovative study, Damkjær shows that nineteenth-century texts gave domesticity not just a spatial, but also a temporal dimension. Novels by Dickens and Gaskell, as well as periodicals, cookery books and albums, all showed domesticity as a process. Damkjær argues that texts’ material form – serialised, fragmented or reappropriated – had a profound influence on their representation of domestic time.
