Elizabeth LaCouture's New Book: 'Dwelling in the World: Family, House, and Home in Tianjin, China'

WSRC Board Member: Dr Elizabeth LaCouture, Assistant Professor, Gender Studies Programme and Department of History, School of Humanities, and Director of the Gender Studies program is publishing a new book!


Her book titled Dwelling in the World: Family, House, and Home in Tianjin, China, 1860–1960, “considers family, house, and home in Tianjin to explore how tempos and structures of everyday life changed with the fall of the Qing Empire and the rise of a colonized city. Elizabeth argues that the intimate ideas and practices of the modern home were more important in shaping the gender and status identities of Tianjin’s urban elites than the new public ideology of the nation. Placing the Chinese home in a global context, she challenges Euro-American historical notions that the private sphere emerged from industrialization. She argues that concepts of individual property rights that emerged during the Republican era became foundational to state-society relations in early Communist housing reforms and in today’s middle-class real estate boom. Drawing on diverse sources from municipal archives, women’s magazines, and architectural field work to social surveys and colonial records, Dwelling in the World recasts Chinese social and cultural history, offering new perspectives on gender and class, colonialism and empire, visual and material culture, and technology and everyday life.”.



Elizabeth’s book comes out in July 2021. Pre-order the book from Columbia University Press here!

A good home needs maintenance. One of the critical points is waterproofing. I live in a humid climate so my basement walls often suffered from moisture. But then I ordered waterproofing from direct waterproofing. After that, the moisture problem in my house disappeared.
