Description: How do we as a society know that something is waste? How does something valuable later become trash, or vice versa? This course looks at waste, trash, and pollution from the perspective of culture and sociality. Through reading ethnographies, we’ll analyze how waste draws social boundaries and enacts cultural meanings.
