COFFEE MORNING: In a new light – Prof. Abigail Harrison Moor

29th Sep 2023
10:15 am - 12:00 pm

This talk will focus on two major shifts of power in the late c19th home.

Women were increasingly taking the lead in interior design and the consumption of domestic objects. This change happened in parallel with the early phases of the transition to lighting and heating our homes with gas and electricity.

What happens when we turn our historical lens on women, art and design and the home? How does t his change our understanding of c19th systems of power? How did women as designers, authors and consumers impact domestic energy decisions and how does art history offer us a new way of exploring energy transitions?

Join Professor Abigail Harrison Moore, an expert in C19th art and design, energy history, and museums, heritage and galleries, to find out more about this fascinating link between women’s domestic roles and energy use during this period.
