The H-Net Network on Material Culture and Vernacular Landscapes and Artifact Preservation will promote and support the study of objects, buildings, sites, structures, landscapes and other material cultural productions as part of the visual record of life.

We are currently seeking reviewers for a large backlog of books on material culture! Please consider becoming a reviewer for H-Material Culture by visiting this page and filling out the form to be included in our reviewer database.

We welcome announcements, CFP's, queries, contributions, and discussions of all things material! To add yours, click the blue "Create" button above and let the process flow!

If you have an idea for a new on-going feature or a one time resource for the field, let us know. Podcasts? Video tours? Image galleries? Digitization projects?  Let us know what you're thinking by emailing our site editors at: editorial-material-culture@mail.h-net.org.

And we tweet or I guess X too! Follow us for the time being at https://twitter.com/H_Mat_Culture
