“The Chemist in the Kitchen”: modernist spatial imaginaries in 1930s periodicals

My project is a materialist analysis of depictions of women within domestic interior spaces in three magazines in the 1930s - The Illustrated Weekly of India and the Indian Ladies' Magazine in British India, and Caras y Caretas in interwar Argentina. Part of a larger ERC project in architectural history called 'Expanding Agency: Women, Race and the Global Dissemination of Modern Architecture', my work intersects feminist geography, social history, and middlebrow periodical studies.
