The Oxford Handbook of Material Culture Studies introduces and reviews thinking in the interdisciplinary field of material culture studies. Drawing together approaches from archaeology, anthropology, geography, and science and technology studies, through twenty-eight specially-commissioned articles, the volume explores contemporary issues and debates in a series of themed sections. These themes covers areas such as disciplinary perspectives, material practices, objects and humans, landscapes and the built environment, and studying particular things. From Coca-Cola, chimpanzees, artworks, and ceramics, to museums, cities, human bodies, and magical objects, this book is a vital resource. A comprehensive bibliography enhances the book's usefulness as a research tool.
