    Roomscape: Women Writers In The British Museum From George Eliot To Virginia Woolf
    Susan David Bernstein - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    Drawing on archival materials around this national library reading room, 'Roomscape' integrates documentary, theoretical, historical, and literary sources to examine the significance of this public interior space for women writers and their treatment of reading and writing spaces in literary texts. This study challenges an assessment of the reading room of the British Museum as a bastion of class and gender privilege, an image firmly established by Virginia Woolf's 'A Room of One's Own' and the legions of feminist scholarship that upholds this spatial conceit.

Ryan grounds his work in the thought of Gilles Deleuze, while also consulting the writings of Jacques Derrida, Rosi Braidotti and Donna Haraway.
