Margaret Angus Research Fellowship Presentation ||  November 8, 2018

Health in the Victorian Home: Health Care and Wellness in Home Advice Literature
(A Presentation by Art History PhD Candidate and Margaret Angus Research Fellow Isabel Luce)

While midwives and doctors had essential roles in Victorian Canada, the day-to-day health of families was left to a homemaker or the ‘Angel in the House.’ By the end of the 19th century, taking care of the home and a family’s health (both physical and spiritual) became an increasingly complex task. Home advice books, targeted to female readers, were oft-referred to encyclopedias on everything one needed to know about maintaining their home. Let’s explore how.
