This special issue of the Material Culture Review is concerned with things being used in a context other than the one in which they originated. Delocalization and relocalization of material culture happen on different scales—not only between different continents, but also within the same country or inside a single apartment. This perspective allows to study the migration of objects from one territory to another.
