Event description

Description

Inaugural lecture by Deborah Sugg Ryan, Professor of Design History and Theory, University of Portsmouth


Deborah Sugg Ryan’s research explores the history of the ‘ideal home’ from the twentieth century to the present. This lecture will investigate the ways in which new suburban class and gender identities were forged through the architecture, design and decoration of the home. It will argue that a specifically suburban Modernism emerged, which looked backwards to the past whilst looking forward to the future.


Date: Wednesday 28 March 2018

Time: 6-7 pm, followed by reception and launch of Ideal Homes, 1918-39: Domestic Design and Suburban Modernism (Manchester University Press)

Venue: Portland Building, Portland Street, Portsmouth PO1 3AH

Parking: £2 Pay and Display in Milldam car park (PO1 3AS)
