Burning down the House: Recycling Domesticity

Synopsis

This cutting-edge collection of essays presents a cross-disciplinary account of domesticity, exploring the ways in which race, nationhood, global economics, gender, sexuality, & class shape domesticity in specific disciplinary discourses & in varied geographical-historical locations. Together, these essays invite us to confront the gaps & erasures in most academic & mainstream accounts of domesticity & to recognize domesticity as a manifestation of larger national & imperialistic projects.
