Interested in Americana and material culture? BU is putting out a call for papers for their March conference, “Beyond Production and Consumption.” They say:
We invite submissions that engage material culture from a broad range of disciplinary perspectives and that examine processes of appropriation, transformation, reclamation, or reinvention related to American material culture. The conference seeks to enlarge our understanding of what Arjun Appadurai has identified as “the social life of things,” and to extend the analytical and methodological processes that underpin material culture studies.
