Cultural Histories of the Material World


Cultural Histories
of the Material World

The volumes in this book series explore the ways human beings have shaped and interpreted the material world from the perspectives of archaeology, anthropology, art and design history, economic, cultural, and landscape history, history of science and technology, and philosophy. These volumes will self-consciously explore general issues about material evidence, as well as show how attention to materiality can contribute to a more precise historical understanding of specific times, places, ways, and means.
