Rehearsing domesticity: postwar Pocono honeymoon resorts
Pages 18

The subject of this chapter is the emergence of dedicated honeymoon resorts

in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania, USA, post-World War II. At first

glance, its inclusion in an essay collection devoted to the theme of gender and

domesticity might seem surprising as domesticity still tends to be immediately

associated with the home. However, domesticity is a concept that, like public

or private, refuses to be pinned down to any fixed set of spatial coordinates.
