2015 is now history, and it’s time to look ahead to 2016. The year should feature a few publications of mine, starting January 8 with the official release of Clean and White. I will give a few talks on the book this year, including in NYC, New England, the Midwest, and West Coast. (Watch this space for details.)
Also due out this year are an article on Bubbly Creek’s past, present, and future I co-wrote with Mike Bryson, and an H-Environment roundtable discussion of Catherine McNeur’s Taming Manhattan. The Bubbly Creek article is part of a special issue of IA, The Journal of the Society for Industrial Archeology on waste I co-edited with Fred Quivik. Discard studies scholars may find the variety of articles we’d included of interest. And though it’s too early to say if that will be out in late 2016 or early 2017, I am putting the finishing touches on Aluminum Upcycled for Johns Hopkins University Press.
