Winter Term 2021/22

Dear students, dear colleagues, dear interested parties,

In the context of two courses from the last SoSe 2021, the podcast series 'trashtalks' was created. Students from the BA research seminar 'Networked Ways of Waste' and the MA course 'Waste in and out of Pericapitalist Sites' have dealt with topics around waste in a total of 11 podcast episodes.

The podcasts focus on the waste sector in Germany in general, on recycling, on the recycling of food and old clothes, on the disposal of hazardous waste as well as on Zero Waste approaches. We also have exciting insights into the recovery of phosphorus from sewage sludge. Or tune in to hear how microplastics are becoming a problem. If you're wondering what queer approaches have to do with waste research, you've come to the right place, as well as if you want to take a closer look at waste and global inequalities. With this in mind: listen in! Also: the last three episodes are in English!

More information about the podcast series can be found here:

Best regards,
Kathrin Eitel
