At the end of the 19th century, the rise of consumer culture, a growing feminist movement, and a strange new habit called “morphinomania” changed the image of the ideal Victorian woman as a paragon of moral virtue, domestic order, and self-restraint. Weaving together histories of consumerism, feminism, and medicine, Susan Zieger examines women’s struggles against discrimination and drug addiction at the fin-de-siecle. Zieger researches and teaches 19th-century literature and culture at UC Riverside. She is the author of Inventing the Addict: Drugs, Race, and Sexuality in Nineteenth-Century British and American Literature.
In conjunction with Tea and Morphine: Women in Paris, 1880 to 1914.
