Taste, and Material Culture
This spring, on 21
and 22 May, the Centre takes its first conference abroad with 'Gender,
Taste and Material Culture in Britain and North America in the Long Eighteenth
Century' at the Huntington Library in San Marino, California. Organised
by the Centre's Associate Directors A V and John Styles, this
two-day event brings together scholars from Britain and America to present
work on the domestic interior that is both comparative and interdisciplinary.
It aims to stimulate a comparative discussion of themes surrounding gender
and material culture, issues of central importance to the study of the
domestic interior. For further details see the programme.
Those wishing to attend should e-mail Carolyn Powell of the Research Division
at the Huntington: firstname.lastname@example.org.
