Call for Papers: Picking Through the Trash

"Ours is a culture and a time immensely rich in trash as it is in treasures."
—Ray Bradbury

"[T]rash talks to us, or certainly speaks of us. However much we want to put trash and garbage and waste and rubbish out of sight, out of mind, out of smell, there is considerable evidence that we take them to be revelatory of all manner of not insignificant facts about individuals, communities, civilizations, or that tired old workhorse the 'human condition.'"
—Elizabeth V Spelman
