Worldwide Waste is the first interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal devoted entirely to a critical interrogation of the cultural, social, economic and political systems within which waste is created, managed and circulated.
The journal privileges no particular theories, debates or trends. Its goal is to actively stimulate publications of innovative scholarship on relatively unexplored topics and/or from geographical areas that have thus far been underrepresented in waste studies.
Submissions are encouraged from across the humanities and social sciences, including anthropology, archaeology, ecology, geography, history, literature, philosophy, politics, sociology, science and technology studies, and the visual and performing arts.
