For this special issue of Wi: Journal of Mobile Media, we are gathering contributions that address the idea of ‘mobile trash.’
The intention of this issue is to reconfigure the concepts of ‘mobile’ and ‘mobilities’ in relation to trash, by its various definitions and formations, from new materialism, feminism, media ecology, media archaeology, and queer frameworks.
