Questions the concepts of 'scholarship', 'criticism' and 'artist' across the different disciplines. Women discussed include authors (Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Sydney Morgan and Anna Jameson) actresses ( Elizabeth Siddons, Dorothy Jordan, and Mary Robinson) critics ( Margaret Oliphant and Mary Cowden Clarke) historians (Agnes Strickland, Lucy Aikin, Mary Anne Everett Green, Elizabeth Cooper and Lucy Toulmin Smith) as well as the writers and readers of Women's magazines, educationalists and translators.

Originally published in 1868, Hints on Household Taste: The Classic Handbook of Victorian Interior Decoration by Charles Locke Eastlake (1836-1906) stands as a classic guide to designing the middle-class Victorian home and the author’s most successful published work as a design critic. Eastlake developed the book while writing advice articles for various publications like The Queen magazine, suggesting ways the ordinary reader could economically and appropriately compose the home using furniture and decorations while adhering to what he argued were good design principles. A quick glance of the text will give the impression that it is simply a guide for one to use when decorating the home, as it provides suggestions on where to purchase quality goods for the home, what these objects should look like using illustrations, and how to compose these objects within a specific room. However, these “hints” provided to the reader also discuss what Eastlake considers poor design, such as imported goods from outside of England, feminine and fashionable tastes, and unnecessary decoration or non-functional objects. Underlying these issues of “bad design” is a presence Eastlake views as a contaminant brought on by a poorly arranged home, polluting what should be a sanitary space, and gathering at the surface of all things: dust. It is essential to question, then, what dust comes to represent in the home when paralleled with these issues of bad design, how exactly one encounters Eastlake’s dust within the pages of a book, and what this ultimately means for the concept of the domestic space. Considering these questions, I argue Eastlake’s Hints on Household Taste positions the dust within the home as a threat, one that contaminates the space literally and metaphorically through design, as evidenced by his use of language, the structure of the text, illustrations, and philosophies of design. Ultimately, I intend to investigate the issue of dust in relation to a broader discourse of network theories using Eastlake’s text as both home-advice literature and design criticism as it relates to the concept of domesticity and the home. By writing this history and analysis, I plan to situate Eastlake within design discourse as a significant designer and theorist of the 19th century that anticipates theories on networks as he engages with dust as a material connected with major anxieties identified within the realm of design in the domestic space.

Modernism And The Architecture Of Private Life

Modernism and the Architecture of Private Life offers a bold new assessment of the role of the domestic sphere in modernist literature, architecture, and design. Elegantly synthesizing modernist literature with architectural plans, room designs, and decorative art, Victoria Rosner's work explores the collaborations among modern British writers, interior designers, and architects in redefining the form, function, and meaning of middle-class private life. Drawing on a host of previously unexamined archival sources and works by figures such as E. M. Forster, Roger Fry, Oscar Wilde, James McNeill Whistler, and Virginia Woolf, Rosner highlights the participation of modernist literature in the creation of an experimental, embodied, and unstructured private life, which we continue to characterize as "modern."

The Age Of Innocence

Edith Wharton’s masterpiece brings to life the grandeur and hypocrisy of a gilded age. Set among the very rich in 1870s New York, it tells the story of Newland Archer, a young lawyer engaged to marry virginal socialite May Welland, when he meets her cousin, Countess Ellen Olenska, a woman unbound by convention and surrounded by scandal. As all three are drawn into a love triangle filled with sensuality, subtlety, and betrayal, Archer faces a harrowing choice between happiness and the social code that has ruled his life. The resulting tale of thwarted love is filled with irony and surprise, struggle and acceptance. Recipient of the first Pulitzer Prize for fiction ever awarded to a woman, this great novel paints a timeless portrait of “society” still unmatched in American literature—an arbitrary, capricious social elite that professes inviolable standards but readily abandons them for greed and desire.

The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design offers a compelling collection of original essays that seek to examine the shifting role of interior architecture and interior design, and their importance and meaning within the contemporary world. Interior architecture and interior design are disciplines that span a complexity of ideas, ranging from human behaviour and anthropology to history and the technology of the future. Approaches to designing the interior are in a constant state of flux, reflecting and adapting to the changing systems of history, culture and politics. It is this process that allows interior design to be used as evidence for identifying patterns of consumption, gender, identity and social issues. The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design provides a pioneering overview of the ideas and arrangements within the two disciplines that make them such important platforms from which to study the way humans interact with the space around them. Covering a wide range of thought and research, the book enables the reader to investigate fully the changing face of interior architecture and interior design, while offering questions about their future trajectory.
