“The Work of Waste” at How Class Works Conference, Stony Brook (June 9)

C&WcoverMy next public talk on Clean and White takes place in Stony Brook the afternoon (3:45-5:15pm, to be exact) of Thursday, June 9 as part of the How Class Works conference at SUNY Stony Brook:

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

Courtney Pina Miller, Brandeis University: The Lazy and Toothless Anse Bundren: Examining White Trash in Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying

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!
