Abstract The six papers in this book are written by scholars of material culture pursuing interpretations in archaeological, historical and ethnographic contexts. All contributors have worked in northern Australia or Southeast Asia, and the papers they have produced form something of a spectrum of difference across our regions of interest. The book, through these selected case studies, illustrates pathways along which objects might contextually alter within the Arafura region, one of the most culturally divers regions on earth. Contributors include: Jill Forshee and Chris Healey, Dan Dwyer, David Bulbeck and Barbara Rowley, Clayton Fredericksen, Patricia Puig and Ian Walters, Malene Bjornskov.
