EIHS Symposium: Interior Spaces: The Domestic, the Personal, the Intimate, and the In-Between

Hayley R. Bowman, Victoria Langland, Helmut Puff, Jessica Kenyatta Walker, Christian de Pee (moderator)

History as traditionally practiced has often given short shrift to aspects of life that for most people are among the most significant—the personal, the intimate, and the affective—as well as the spaces where such emotive states are often experienced, be they the kitchen, the convent, the waiting room, or the nursery.  Our four panelists will contribute to the project of pushing “Against History” by drawing on their rich research into diverse aspects of interiority and in-betweenness to demonstrate that such research is not just possible but necessary for a more complete, complex, and nuanced understanding of the past.
