Girls' Economies: Work & Play Cultures

Edited by Miriam Forman-Brunell
and Diana Anselmo-Sequeira
foreword by Dr. Eileen Boris

We know more about the history of grownups' labor than we do about girls' work, especially in informal domains. We know more about adult women workers than about girlhood employment and work-themed amusements. We know more about girls' consumption practices than about their production patterns. We know more about childhood and play than we do about how play informs girls' work skills, sensibilities, and identities as workers. We know more about businessmen and women than about moneymaking girls.

Leeds Trinity University, Northern Nineteenth Century Network

The Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies and the Northern Nineteenth-Century Network is pleased to announce a one-day colloquium, to take place at Leeds Trinity University on Friday 17th April 2015.

The centrality of objects to Victorian families, homes, and public culture, is pervasive in Victorian literature and culture: the auction in Vanity Fair; the jewellery Dorothea denies herself in Middlemarch; the Great Exhibition. The nineteenth century also saw the founding and expansion of some of Britain's best-loved museums such as the Victorian and Albert Museum and the opening up of the National Gallery and British Museum to cheap public entry.
