This workshop will explore the social life of plastic and seeks contributions from a range of disciplines including but not limited to anthropology, sociology, area studies, STS, history, economics, linguistics and geography. Of particular interest are the entanglements between humans and non-humans that plastics bring about; the problematisation of plastics in the public sphere; pollution, contamination and toxicity; citizen science; and the enrolment of plastics in circular and ethical economies.

The workshop is on 7-8 November 2019. If you would like more information please visit to register contact Dr Teresa Perez (
