About this book

This book comprises twelve illustrated, interdisciplinary essays on gender and material culture across the eighteenth century. These essays point to the many ways in which gender mediated and was shaped by the consumption and production of goods and elucidate the complex relationships between material and social practice in the period.

Reviews

'This outstanding collection provides a timely and compelling intervention in the field of material and cultural history. In collecting these essays together, the editors have combined an astonishing level of focus, detail and scholarly rigour with a breadth and clarity of vision. The result is a highly original and groundbreaking book that asks us to pay attention to questions of scale, texture and possession in the ordering of our lives.' - Dr Elizabeth Eger, Department of English Language& Literature, King's College, University of London, UK

'[This book] is worth reading from cover to cover. All the stories of women and objects are interesting and thought-provoking for the insight they give into different aspects of the triangle of gender, materiality and ideas.' - Reviews in History

'...this easy-to-read volume contributes greatly to our understanding of the social ties of the 1660 1830 timeframe, while explaining some of the trends that we, in the twenty-first century, often take for granted.' - Sophie Nichol Sauvé, The European Legacy
