    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Published conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    This chapter examines the society column edited by Lady Eleanor Smith, in the Weekly/Sunday Dispatch, 1927-1930. It argues the society column is significant for historians as it can reveal perspectives on the society of the time. Its wide-ranging subject matter is useful to explore cultural boundaries and the creation/recreation of cultural identities. It looks at the creation of 'symbolic boundaries' to draw attention to what disturbs cultural order, and what is deemed 'matter out of place'.
