3.5 The Work of Waste – SAC 311
Carl Zimring, Pratt Institute: Dirty Work Reconsidered: On Race and the Waste Trades in the United States
Robin D. Muhammad, Ohio University: Smoke on the Water: Land Waste Workers and Shipbreaking Labor in Comparative Perspective, 1960-2000

I should have copies of the book for sale, but the exciting part is being on a panel for the first time since LAWCHA Chicago with my grad school friend Robin. Yes, if you attend, you get two Carnegie Mellon history graduates discussing waste work for the price of one!
