Discard Studies at ASEH in Seattle

Seattle_Farmers_MarketThe American Society for Environmental History meets in Seattle this year, and I am part of two discussions related to waste, technology, and the environment.

On Friday, April 1 at 10:30am, I will chair the panel “Ethereal Wastescapes: Rethinking the Meaning, Place, and Materiality of Pollution,” with papers by Sara Pritchard, Nina Wormbs, and Ruth Rand.

On Saturday, April 2 at 3pm, I will be part of a roundtable discussion on discard studies and history with participants including Martin Melosi, Steve Corey, and Peter Thorsheim. We will, indeed, be talking trash.
