Seung Ah Oh’s Recontextualizing Asian American Domesticity:
From Madame Butterfly to My American Wife! is a study of domesticity that departs from more traditional accounts of the “home,” which typically delineate it as solid bedrock upon which local, national, ethnoracial, sexual, gendered, and class identities are forged.
Customarily, the home not only connotes stability but is also persistently seen as a woman’s domain, a necessary bulwark shielding her from the dangers and troubles her male counterpart confronts beyond the safe confines of the home. John F. W. Ware, author of Home Life: What It Is, and What It Needs (Boston, 1866), pronounced the home as “the peculiar sphere of woman. With the world at large she has little to do. Her influence begins, centers, and
ends in her home” (85); the home was thus an “enclosure, a secret, separate place,” which “guarded” white middle-class women against the wider world, even as it became a space expected to shut them in and away from the outside world (23).
