Material Worlds

Edited by Simon Bronner

Books in this series explore worlds of our own making. Emphasizing interdisciplinary perspectives on material culture, authors interpret the ways in which individuals and communities create environments, traditions, and symbols from art, architecture, furnishing, food, and dress. In addition to interpreting the cultural values that artifacts and environments reveal, the series sheds light on the diversity of material worlds across the social landscape. Whether remote or close to home, the worlds uncovered by this series reflect the ways that "material" and "culture" come together in everyday lives.
