I have added my introduction to the Encyclopedia of Consumption and Waste: The Social Science of Garbage to my Academia.edu site. (To learn about how you might read the rest of the encyclopedia, see the publisher’s site.) Because doesn’t everyone want to learn more about our consumptive habits on Valentine’s Day?
Don’t answer that question. Just send me a box of chocolates and I promise to treat the packaging in a responsible manner once I devour the contents.
