Trash operates as a physical and symbolic manifestation of consumer society and its associated debris; it celebrates the filthy, excessive and grotesque; and it expresses how power communicates and classifies abject bodies. It not only describes the devaluation of trash culture, but it also refers to the material practices and processes through which we deal with ‘waste’ in all its forms.

In this one day postgraduate conference participants will rummage through the trash heap of history, art, media, culture, politics, and society in order to uncover new scholarly approaches and methods that continue to appropriate and recycle theories of trash.

A range of papers from postgraduate researchers will consider the decayed, disposed of, degraded and decried from a range of academic disciplines.

To coincide with TRASH at the University of Sussex there will be an evening of art, film and music at The Basement in central Brighton on Thursday 13th September from 7.30pm. A range of practitioners will exhibit their work, providing the opportunity for researchers to engage with the theme of trash outside of the academy.
