Stir It Up: Home Economics in American Culture

#ad
University of Pennsylvania Press #ad - But as historian megan elias shows in Stir It Up, home economics began as an idealistic reform movement in higher education in the early 1900s. Leaders of this movement sought to discover and disseminate the best methods for performing domestic work while creating new professional options for women that were based on elements of home life.

For americans who came of age in the mid-twentieth century, home economics conjures memories of burnt toast and sewing disasters. Stir it up explains what the successes and failures of home economists can tell us about American culture. Even as home economists were redefining family dynamics and influencing government policies, their field was becoming an object of scorn, such as school lunch programs, especially to the feminists of the 1960s.

Home and family were treated as subjects for scientific analysis; students wore lab coats while baking bread and performed rigorous tests on the palatability of their work.

Creating Consumers: Home Economists in Twentieth-Century America

#ad
The University of North Carolina Press #ad - Goldstein charts the development of the profession from its origins as an educational movement to its identity as a source of consumer expertise in the interwar period to its virtual disappearance by the 1970s. Working for both business and government, home economists walked a fine line between educating and representing consumers while they shaped cultural expectations about consumer goods as well as the goods themselves.

. Home economics emerged at the turn of the twentieth century as a movement to train women to be more efficient household managers. Goldstein looks beyond 1970s feminist scholarship that dismissed home economics for its emphasis on domesticity to reveal the movement's complexities, including the extent of its public impact and debates about home economists' relationship to the commercial marketplace.

Creating Consumers: Home Economists in Twentieth-Century America #ad - At the same moment, American families began to consume many more goods and services than they produced.
