This research day will explore the use of the domestic interior from historical and contemporary perspectives. The event aims to facilitate exchange between new researchers studying the domestic interior and domestic objects, encouraging dialogue between designers, anthropologists and historians. Papers consider designing and organising the home, using and experiencing the domestic interior, regulating behaviour in the home and the limitations and possibilities in the design and study of the interior.
The event will be held at the Royal College of Art on 9 February 2004. It forms part of an ongoing initiative of the AHRB Centre for the Study of the Domestic Interior to support an interdisciplinary community of postgraduates working in fields related to the domestic interior: design, fine art, anthropology, art history, historical geography and social and cultural history.
Registration: full price - £15, DHS members - £11, students - £5. Fee includes sandwich lunch, morning coffee and afternoon tea.
