At Home in the World
Chair Kathleen Davidson. Contributions by: Donna Brett, Kathleen Davidson, Mark De Vitis, Mary Roberts

Themes to be discussed include families, portraiture and material culture; portraying home in a divided nation; house museums and peripatetic private collectors; imperial homemaking and colonial cosmopolitanism.
