We will consider all empirically-grounded papers that focus on tangible property, anywhere in the world. All kinds of empirical methods are welcome, including historical, statistical, interviews, comparative, ethnographic, case study, discourse analysis, etc. Also note that papers submitted for publication, but not yet accepted, are also welcome.

If you have a book you would like discussed in a panel session, then please get in touch as we are hoping to have an “authors meet readers” session. Also, if you would be interested in serving as a session chair or discussant please let us know.
