Death, materiality and mediation : an ethnography of remembrance in Ireland
Graham, Barbara, 1954- author
New York : Berghahn Books, 2017
Barbara Graham analyzes a diverse range of objects associated with remembrance in both the public and private arenas through ethnography of communities on both sides of the Irish border. In doing so, she explores the materially mediated interactions between the living and the dead, revealing the physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual roles of the dead in contemporary communities. Through this study, Graham expands the concept of materiality to include narrative, song, senses, emotions, ephemera and embodied experience. She also examines how modern practices are informed by older beliefs and folk religion.

"People's embodied engagement with food and the material culture of food are central to their daily experiences and their sense of identity. This book builds upon the existing dialogue of the materiality of food by the novel addition of the material culture of food (objects used in packaging, storing, processing and consuming food). By looking at cultures spanning from ancient Egypt to 20th century Netherlands, from modern Kenya to ancient China, the interdisciplinary chapters explore the multiple interplays between foods, bodies, material worlds, rituals, and embodied knowledge that emerge from these material encounters and how this knowledge, in turn, shape the material culture of food"--Provided by publisher.
