Josh Lepawsky is a an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and Memorial University of Newfoundland. Lepawksy researches the geographies of modern waste. Modern wastes are those that are synthetic, heterogeneous, and which entail high degrees of uncertainty around their mitigation or remediation. Two case studies inform his work: the international trade and traffic of discarded electronics (or ‘e-waste’) and, much more recently, ‘offworld rubbish’ which Lepawksy defines as the remains and discards of human extraterrestrial activity. More about his work can be found at his blog, Reassembling Rubbish.
