Women and Material Culture comprises twelve illustrated, interdisciplinary essays on gender and material culture across the long eighteenth century. Written by an international group of scholars working in the fields of visual culture, dress history and literary criticism, these essays point to the manifold ways in which gender mediated and was shaped by the consumption and production of goods (from clothing and artworks to books) and elucidate the complex, shifting relationships between material and social practice in the period.
JENNIE BATCHELOR is Lecturer in English at the University of Kent. CORA KAPLAN is a scholar of international distinction in the areas of nineteenth-and twentieth-century cultural criticsm and hsitory and of feminist theory.
