Our friends at Discard Studies highly recommend this Thursday’s book launch for Samantha MacBride, author of the recently released Recycling Reconsidered: the Present Failure and Future Promise of Environmental Action (MIT 2012). The listing notes that Samantha’s book “offers a critical yet supportive appraisal of the historical development of recycling in the United States, looking at both materials flows and social significance of this meaningful ecological activity”.
MacBride will be joined by Harvey Molotch (Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and Sociology at NYU), Robin Nagle (Director of NYU’s John W. Draper Program in Humanities and Social Thought) and Jeremy Friedman (Manager of Sustainability Initiatives at NYU’s Sustainability Office). Wine and cheese will be on hand. Be sure to RSVP so that they know how many to expect.
Thursday February 9th | 6:00 p.m – 8:00 p.m.
