Theorising the Popular Conference 2018
Liverpool Hope University, July 11th-12th 2018
Waste, whether municipal, hazardous, biomedical, or contaminate, is receiving increasing attention both academically and politically. A drive for improved education around waste management is visible at national and community levels, while the media is brim-full of reports that shed light onto the complex global challenges of pollution, toxicity and ongoing environmental damage. ‘Disposable populations’ also frequent the news, with anti-refugee, anti-immigration and anti-globalization sentiments increasingly visible across Europe and America.
