#30. If you, like me are stuck at home due to school or your museum closing because of COVID-19, a great exercise in relieving boredom is creating exhibits out of a collection of items in your own home, like funko pops, collector spoons, shot glasses etc. The research itself can lead you down some interesting rabbit holes.

“I strongly believe that readers will benefit from and enjoy reading this subtle, eccentric book. Joseph’s lively style makes this potentially important addition to queer studies, aesthetics, and material culture studies in a delightful read. By gathering familiar figures with relatively unknown ones under the common rubric of exquisite materials, Joseph has clarified popular, even cliched and banal, observations about queer sensibilities, lending them vital and solid cultural analysis.”

“A vibrant compendium of essays that gives a master class in object analysis and shatters old categories of material and visual culture. Together, the authors powerfully demonstrate the global movement of commodities, the sometimes numinous power of memory objects, and the closely calibrated and negotiated human indications of wealth and power in early America. Historians of all stripes should pay attention to their clarion call to look deeply and think broadly.”
