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 orange "Start a Discussion" button above this text. 

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.

And we tweet, too!

Recent Announcements and other activity appear below. All CFP's posted to the site can be found in the links on the right, as can Jobs in Material Culture Studies.
