A Treatise on Domestic Economy, for the Use of Mothers and Housewives

by Josefa Acevedo de Gómez, translated by Sarah Sanchez

A Treatise on Domestic Economy, for the Use of Mothers and Housewives
  • 142 pp. ISBN 9781905510085
  • Date of Publication: 1 December 2007

What advice does Josefa Acevedo (1803- 1861) give to middle-class Colombian housewives of the 1840s? To get up at dawn, take exercise, educate their children, and civilise their men - men who sleep on the sofa and spit on the carpet - but above all, to save time and money. The model they should emulate is the thrifty English housewife, a true paragon of self-reliance and industriousness in a modern society.

This is the first and only translation into English of any of Acevedo's works. Sarah Sanchez has translated the first edition of the Treatise (1848) with accuracy and flair. In so doing she has made it possible for non-Spanish speakers interested in women's domestic culture to read and appreciate this rare Colombian example of nineteenth-century conduct literature. Catherine Davies' Introduction provides the reader with a snapshot of Acevedo's life and places the book in its literary and social context.

Teu amor fez de mim um lago triste: Ensaios sobre Os Maias
  • 282 pp. ISBN 9781912399260
  • Date of Publication: 14 August 2021

Este volume reúne ensaios revistos e inéditos sobre os romances de Eça de Queirós, em particular Os Maias, focalizando temas de incesto, nacionalidade, Iberismo, amor interdito, amizade masculina e a condição feminina numa sociedade patriarcal dominada pelo poder da Igreja Católica. O enfoque teórico recorre à teoria psicanalítica freudiana e pós-freudiana, e o contexto histórico contempla dilemas nacionais relativos a nacionalidade e ao entendimento de Portugal enquanto entidade Ibérica e/ou marítima/imperial.

Maria Manuel Lisboa é Professora Catedrática de Literatura e Cultura Portuguesa na Universidade de Cambridge e é Fellow de St. John’s College, Cambridge. Antes de assumir a sua posição em Cambridge lecionou e estudou nas Universidades de Newcastle, Nottingham e University College London.
