About the Author

Maruska Svasek is Senior Lecturer in the School of History and Anthropology, Queens University, Belfast. Her main research interests are emotional dynamics, migration, and art and artefacts. Recent publications include Human Mobility and Emotions: Ethnographies of Movement (ed., Routledge 2012), Anthropology, Art and Cultural Production (Pluto 2007), Postsocialism: Politics and Emotions in Central and Eastern Europe (ed., Berghahn Books 2006), and Mixed Emotions: Anthropological Studies of Feeling (co-ed., with Kay Milton, Berg 2005).


"This is a timely volume that moves the study of material culture in interesting directions by providing intimate portrayals of the varied significance that objects hold in the emotional lives of migrants - [It]effectively explores the many roles of objects in the lives of migrants as repositories for memory, technologies for communication, and catalysts to symbolize new relationships and identities." * Morgan Perkins, SUNY
