With Drs. John Krygier and Jim Peoples, I am a co-organizer for the Sagan National Colloqium, ‘The Place of Waste’ at the Ohio Wesleyan University in 2015-16. In the most immediate future, we will host a symposium at Ohio Wesleyan, November 13-14, 2015, with Dr. Robin Nagle as the keynote speaker. Nagle is the author of Picking Up, an ethnography of the New York City Department of Sanitation. In Spring 2016, John, Jim, and I will host a series of speakers and campus visits from scholars and practitioners on the theme of Waste. I will post more on these events in the months to come.
