Adornment as a Method of Interior Design

Debra Roth, L.S.C.W.

In this essay, predominant psychoanalytic perspectives on the meanings and functions of bodily adornment are interrogated from a feminist perspective. An argument for theorizing the prolonged, if not perpetual, utility of surface-sensory experience to ongoing personal development, continuing into adulthood, is posited.

A case vignette is presented that chronicles the operationalization of these hypotheses.
