"Men at Home: Masculine Domesticity in Nineteenth-Century America"

In Rural Studies (1867), Donald Grant Mitchell describes ways of
appealing to "a man's sense of domesticity" in the architecture and
decoration of homes. This panel will focus on connections between men
and the home in nineteenth-century America. What signals a "masculine"
domestic space in mid-century literature and culture? In what ways do
men's domestic priorities differ from those of women, and how might new
considerations of a masculine domesticity change our understanding of
nineteenth-century home life? Send 300-500 word abstracts to Maura
D'Amore ( by September 15.
