Home and Identity in Nineteenth-Century Literary London

This short section establishes the consonances between the representation of London’s nineteenth-century housing crisis, and its modern-day housing crisis. It emphasises the shared use of language in journalistic representations of urban poverty, but also attends to key differences: while the modern-day housing crisis is preoccupied with the number of homes available and their value as a market commodity, the nineteenth-century housing crisis focused on what new forms of housing could address urgent social need.
