M/C Journal ‘waste’ Issue – Call for submissions

In this issue of M/C Journal we seek contributions that consider the matter and metaphor of waste in diverse cultural contexts. Beyond considerations of waste in terms of trash and refuse we seek to delve into areas of waste overlooked: wasted time, wasted bodies, getting wasted, literal and metaphorical wastelands and dumping grounds. Article deadline: 25 June 2010
