With the help of many friends and family, in 2012 I built a tiny house out of mostly reclaimed material. I planned to live in the 216 sq. ft. space for the length of my PhD studies and perhaps beyond. In this way, I aimed to live a little smaller, leave a little lighter, and learn in what ways formal study can be acted in the every day.
Public: Projects like this attract a lot of media attention. The tiny seems quite photogenic!
Scholarly: Visit my academia.edu site to read about how the experiences in living in a tiny house and moving in the tiny house movement inform my scholarly thinking on the house justice, 19th century literature, and issues like homelessness.
