Description

The latest volume in the Artefacts series, Objects in Motion: Globalizing Technology delves into globalization's various manifestations throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Each chapter highlights the movement of a specific object within the global economy. Transported out of their original localized frames of meaning, these objects are resignified in new contexts, connected by the interplay of the global landscapes. Bringing together the methods and objects of study from anthropology and the history of technology, Objects in Motion explores the technological, cultural, and political dimensions of globalization in the past and the present.
