'Materialities' is a cultural history of song on the page. Concentrating on print in the early modern period, it approaches its topic via the French chanson, arguably the most broadly disseminated genre of polyphony in the sixteenth century. 'Materialities' is as much about how to study print culturally as it is about 'the music itself'. In this way it aligns with histories of the book by scholars such as Roger Chartier, adding a musical perspective to studies of print culture.

Paris and the Cliché of History traces the changing historical meanings of photographs of this city during a century marked by urban renovation, war, occupation, liberation, and visual documentation. Challenging the idea that photographs merely document the past, it calls for new methods of reading photos as material objects with histories of their own and sheds insight on the capital's reduction to an image in the twentieth century.

The fifteen essays in this book explore the influence of imperialism in a range of urban centres, including London, Paris, Rome, Vienna, Marseilles, Glasgow and Seville. The first part on "imperial landscapes" is devoted to large-scale architectural schemes and monuments, including the Queen Victoria Memorial in London and the Vittoriano in Rome. In the second part, the focus is on imperial display throughout the city, from spectacular exhibitions and ceremonies, to more private displays of empire in suburban gardens. The final part considers the changing cultural and political identities in the imperial city, looking particularly at nationalism, masculinity and anti-imperialism.
