ENG 124 - Devil in the House

The domestic sphere, especially in the nineteenth century, is associated with the bourgeoisie, banality, and conservative family values. In reality, the domestic encompassed economic insecurity, social transgression, sexual violence and queered ideas of marriage. Focusing on the nineteenth-century novel, this course links the domestic with divorce, violence, and poverty, as well as feminism. In tracing the heterogeneity of households and the multiple meanings of the domestic, we will also consider the contemporary household. Fulfills the Verbal Expression (VE) requirement. Offered periodically.
