The inbetweenness of things : materializing mediation and movement between worlds by Paul Basu( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We habitually categorize the world in binary logics of 'animate' and 'inanimate', 'natural' and 'supernatural', 'self' and 'other', 'authentic' and 'inauthentic'. The Inbetweenness of Things rejects such Western classificatory traditions - which tend to categorize objects using bounded notions of period, place and purpose - and argues instead for a paradigm where objects are not one thing or another but a multiplicity of things at once. Adopting an `object-centred' approach, with contributions from material culture specialists across various disciplines, the book showcases a series of objects that defy neat classification. In the process, it explores how `things' mediate and travel between conceptual worlds in diverse cultural, geographic and temporal contexts, and how they embody this mediation and movement in their form. With an impressive range of international authors, each essay grounds explorations of cutting-edge theory in concrete case studies. An innovative, thought-provoking read for students and researchers in anthropology, archaeology, museum studies and art history which will transform the way readers think about objects
Highland homecomings : genealogy and heritage tourism in the Scottish highland diaspora by Paul Basu( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Highland Homecomings examines the role of place, ancestry and territorial attachment in the context of a modern age characterised by mobility and rootlessness. People of Scottish descent are dispersed throughout the world: Paul Basu explores the journeys they make to the Scottish Highlands and Islands to undertake genealogical research and seek out sites associated with their ancestors. He argues that through these genealogical journeys, individuals are able to construct meaningful self-narratives from the ambiguities of their diasporic migrant histories, and so recover a more secure sense of home and self-identity."--Jacket
