View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

One of the most influential anthropological works of the last two decades, Alfred Gell's Art and Agency is a provocative and ambitious work that both challenged and reshaped anthropological understandings of art, agency, creativity and the social. It has become a touchstone in contemporary artifact-based scholarship. This volume brings together leading anthropologists, archaeologists, art historians and other scholars into an interdisciplinary dialogue with Art and Agency, generating a timely re-engagement with the themes, issues and arguments at the heart of Gell's work, which remains salient, and controversial, in the social sciences and humanities. Extending his theory into new territory – from music to literary technology and ontology to technological change – the contributors do not simply take stock, but also provoke, critically reassessing this important work while using it to challenge conceptual and disciplinary boundaries.

About the Author:

Liana Chua is Lecturer in Anthropology at Brunel University London. She works on conversion to Christianity, ethnic citizenship, landscape, resettlement and conservation in Malaysian Borneo, and on artifact-oriented theory and museology more broadly. She is the author of The Christianity of Culture: Conversion, Ethnic Citizenship, and the Matter of Religion in Malaysian Borneo (2012).

Review:

"...profound scholarly reflections on the distributed effects of Alfred Gell's endeavor to identify an anthropological theory of ...a captivating pendant piece to Gell's original publication. Itis not meant as a guidebook to understanding Gell's work; rather it is a collection of complex studies that capture distinct engagements with Gell's ideas around an anthropology of art."  ·  Material World

"Chua and Elliott have pulled together an excellent volume to address a real problem in the interdisciplinary discussions of art... While I think the volume is most useful for those teaching arts-oriented disciplines, it is also a valuable volume for those thinking through curatorial choices in regard to ethnographic and art objects."  ·  Museum Anthropology
