This book concludes with two afterwords, the first of which argues how centering itinerancy as concept and method enables a reconsideration of scale in the historian's craft. It emphasizes the book's focus on itinerant matter and cultural practices, from music and musicians to body movements, pidgin, gift-giving, and aluminum, that traverse vast spaces—oceans, regions—or centuries, or both at the same time. The second afterword draws on the work of the German sociologist Niklas Luhmann to reflect on the culture concept itself and the ways in which it needs to be implicated in the moving practices explored by the book. It also considers how cultural processes extending backward past European modernity raises new questions about the history of how the modern concept of culture was itself established in Europe.

Keywords:   itinerancy, cultural practices, music, pidgin, gift-giving, aluminum, Niklas Luhmann, culture, modernity, Europe
