Abstract

The 'Domesticating Energy' seminar was run by the AHRC Material Cultures of Energy project, and was held in Pembroke College, University of Cambridge in May 2017. The seminar ran for two days and included international participants from Europe and the United States presenting current research on energy use in domestic environments, from 17th century firewood to solar panels. The papers sparked a lively discussion, both about the material discussed, but also about methodological concerns in the study of energy history, covering both quantitative and qualitative approaches.
