What Objects Mean: An Introduction to Material Culture
Objects, artifacts, and other forms of material culture are studied in many different parts of the university. Yet, to date, there has been no introductory book that allows students to understand the basic ways in which material culture can be studied. Arthur Asa Berger, author of an array of texts in communication, popular culture, and social theory, provides a brief, user-friendly guide for students learning what objects can mean. Berger provides a series of exercises at the end to allow students to do their own analyses of objects in their environment. Brief and inexpensive enough to be included as a component in courses ranging from anthropology to art history, pop culture to psychology, Bergers introductory guide to material culture will be of use to many instructors. Arthur Asa Berger is professor emeritus in the department of broadcast communication Arts at San Francisco State University. He is author of 60 books on media, popular culture, visual culture, and writing. He has authored textbooks, scholarly works, practical manuals and a series of teaching novels for classroom use.
