Worldwide Waste is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal presenting innovative research on waste from around the world. It critically interrogates 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, however, 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. One of the aims of the journal is to counteract the Euro-centric character of much current work about waste.
As interdisciplinarity is the central principle of the journal, 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.
