Launching the Material Culture Perspectives Book Series!

The series publishes innovative studies on material culture in literary, visual, and historical studies. The series seeks titles that engage with physical objects— broadly defined and including their formal attributes, ascribed functions, contribution to larger processes and practices, or symbolic significance—to explore historical and critical questions regarding the formation, dissemination, consumption, and contestation of material cultures and their ideologies, and how these affect any number of human pursuits, from scientific investigations to everyday material life. Books may address a wide range of topics, including matters of race, sexuality, or class, and encompass local or global contexts. The series also invites treatments that offer provocative, reflective, and theoretically informed approaches to material culture studies in the twenty-first century.
