The Eighteenth-Century Dublin town house
Form, function and finance
Christine Casey, editor
In the 18th century Dublin grew spectacularly; in the last quarter of a century, understanding of that growth has increased enormously. This book brings together a range of perspectives on the subject of the 18th-century Dublin town house, illuminating the political, economic and cultural activities of Dubliners, the resulting physical growth of the city and changing architectural manifestations. Some of the studies focus on questions of style and technique; others seek to relate the places in which people lodge to the lives they passed in them. The essays draw on an impressive variety of sources including archaeological investigations of sites and documentary evidence such as maps, leases, and family correspondence.
Irish women artists, 1800-2009
familiar but unknown
…imear OíConnor, editor
This collection of essays examines the life, career, work and context of familiar but previously little-known Irish women artists. It focuses on the work of women artists living in Ireland. The authors have produced essays that are hugely diverse in terms of content, method and theoretical issues. Some take a gendered point of view; others adopt a biographical and documentary, albeit interrogative, approach, while some question the construction and constriction of the canon of art, arguing that it is a patriarchal structure that has disallowed the inclusion of the work of women.
