full name / name of organization: 
Alexander McKee / University of Delaware
contact email: 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency defines a "waste stream" as "The total flow of solid waste from homes, businesses, institutions, and manufacturing plants that is recycled, burned, or disposed of in landfills, or segments thereof such as the 'residential waste stream' or the 'recyclable waste stream.'" This panel deploys this term to address the relationship between production, consumption, and waste that existed at the start of the twentieth century. It invites papers from all disciplines that examine modernist attitudes toward waste and abundance.
