Handbook of Material Culture
Description:

Survey of the theories, concepts, intellectual debates, substantive domains, and traditions of study characterizing the analysis of "things." Maps material culture studies as a theoretical and conceptual field; examines the relationship between material forms, the human body and the senses; focuses on subject-object relations; considers things in terms of processes and transformations in terms of production, exchange and consumption, performance and the significance of things over the long-term; and considers the contemporary politics and poetics of displaying, representing and conserving material and the manner in which this impacts on notions of heritage, tradition and identity. Chris Tilley, et al, eds. Available through SAGE Knowledge.
