Material Identities by Joanna Sofaer

Book Description

Material Identities examines the way that individuals use material objects as tools for projecting aspects of their identities. * Considers the way identity is fashioned, launched, used, and admired in the material world. * Contributors intervene from the disciplines of art history, anthropology, design and material culture. * Considers contrasting media - painting, print, sculpture, dress, coinage, architecture, furniture, luxury items, and interior design. * Explores the complexity of identity through the intersection notions of gender, ethnicity, age, sexuality, and class. * Reaffirms the central role of public identities and their impact on social life.
