Doing Domesticity

(p.1) Introduction
Extreme Domesticity

Susan Fraiman

Columbia University Press

Stages my argument over against left critiques of domesticity, which tend to privilege domestic ideology while overlooking non-conforming versions of “home.” Introduces the idea of “extreme” domesticities: the non-normative households of gender rebels; the marginal households of those dealing with dislocation and economic insecurity. Offers an extensive analysis of Luce Giard’s neglected study, “Doing-Cooking,” a model for appreciating the devalued, everyday domestic lives of women. Argues for Giard’s importance as a pioneer of everyday life studies alongside her more celebrated collaborator, Michel de Certeau.

Keywords:   domestic ideology, Angel in the House, Nancy Armstrong, everyday life studies, Luce Giard, The Practice of Everyday Life
