Conference: The Domestic Sphere in Europe 16th to 19th Century, 07-09.09.2017, Thun

Joachim Eibach, Univ. of Berne, Committee of the SNSF-Sinergia-project Doing House and Family
Venue: Thun
Time: 07-09.09.2017
The conference brings together renowned experts in the historiography of the house, home and family. It chiefly takes a praxeological perspective and focuses on aspects of „doing the domestic“. Also covered will be aspects of terminology, social space, gender and representations. How did women and men from different social milieus perform and understand the domestic in their daily lives? How were the house, home and family entangled in their social environments? And how did all this change from the early modern to the modern period?
