Abstract: Things in Motion: Object Itineraries in Anthropological Practice, Rosemary A. Joyce, Susan D. Gillespie Santa Fe: School for Advanced Research Press, 2015. 284pp Things in Motion makes stimulating reading for a broad readership: anyone interested in relations between people and things will find much to reward them here. The book is framed around an object itinerary approach, which the editors argue yields an understanding of the movement, activeness, routes, and effects of things over time. It enables, they claim, insight into what things do, both on what Joyce describes as the ‘intimate’ level of one human life and on the far larger ‘scales of geology, cosmology, and social history’ (p. 37).
