Fixing the world ­‐ Excess, leftovers and innovation

Remainders and the way they are dealt with are a productive social sciences heuristic. Incorporating the subject of waste but seeking to cast a much wider net, this workshop brings together researchers from multiple disciplines, working in a variety of distant and 'nearby' fieldsites, around the topic of 'remainders,' conceived of not only as 'obverse of production' but also in their crucial practical and symbolic dimensions.

This mini workshop is organized in the framework the international project coordinated by Frederic Joulian (EHESS), Yann Philippe Tastevin (CNRS) and Jamie Furniss (Edinburgh Univ.)
