Molly-Claire Gillett in Text and Performance Quarterly

Molly-Claire Gillett’s “‘Home Charms’: unpacking an Irish immigrant woman’s home through speculative design” was published in Text and Performance Quarterly.  Abstract below.

Maeve Brennan’s 1953 short story “The Bride,” describes the isolation and complicated homesickness of a young Irish woman living as a domestic servant in New York. Taking Brennan’s story as a starting point, this paper uses a designed and made object – a set of digitally modeled and 3D printed Home Charms –as research-creation based methodology to investigate the spatial, material, and performative implications of settlement in a new domestic space, especially for women who lived, worked, and were conceptually identified with the home, its architecture and material culture.
