Bringing together the work of over twenty international scholars from various disciplines, Cultural Histories of the Material World provides a substantial collection of works that explore materiality and material culture from a historical perspective. These scholars represent some of the most innovative voices in their respective fields, using historiographical lens to chronicle how the field of material culture has operated between multiple disciplines and has grown to prominence in the last two decades, both inside and beyond the academy. Essential reading for the study of material culture and including writing by Bill Brown, Nancy Troy, Horst Bredekamp, Jaś Elsner, and Pamela H. Smith, this book builds on the recent proliferation of works that address materiality and offers unified collection of key perspectives on the material turn across the humanities.
