Thinking waste sociologically

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Troubled Times: wars raging and warfare taking new urban forms; democratic inertia and the failure of the civil; religious and political antagonisms on the march and gaining traction; networked whistleblowers confronting informational dictatorships; lifestyle choices of protected affluence driving climate change; and spinning - out of such contexts of adversity, practices of market reshapers and related social theorizers busy at work building discursive empires of scholarly advantage. In this brief addition to the volume, a work dug out from an incessant urge to practice a form of rethinking, an attempt is made to chart emerging processes of recalib ration at work within global mixes of the visible and valuable, wherein the knots of the ecological imaginary undo themselves and their dark discourses of exigency and imperative
