Material Culture in Transit: Theory and Practice


As the first in the Book Series, Routledge Studies in Anthropology and Museums, “Material Culture in Transit: Theory and Practice” constellates curators and scholars actively working with material culture within academic and museal institutions through theory and practice. The rich collection of essays critically addresses the multivalent ways in which mobility reshapes the characteristics of artefacts, specifically under prevailing issues of representation and colonial liabilities. The volume attests to material culture as central to understanding the repercussions of problematic histories and proposes novel ways to address them. It offers valuable reading for scholars of anthropology, museum studies, history and others with interest in material culture. This publication is edited by Zainabu Jallo from the field of Social Anthropology.
