Synopsis:

This book offers the first framing of potential social science approaches to the compelling and yet hugely under-researched topic of food waste.  

  • Shows how the profile of waste has suddenly increased as a topic of sociological relevance and extends these developments to analyses of food
  • Conceptualises waste as a dynamic category and one that plays an important role in processes of cultural and economic organisation
  • Brings together theoretical and empirical contributions from a range of disciplinary perspectives
  • Engages with food waste in a number of contexts and at a variety of scales
  • Explores issues such as the regulation and governance of food systems; the materiality of foodstuffs and associated technologies; the dynamics of social practices and what goes on in domestic kitchens; the ways in which food and waste are circulated in societies; dumpster diving and freeganism, and socio-technical innovations for waste reduction
  • Demonstrates how food waste is a useful lens through which to tend to a number of contemporary issues within sociology and social theory

From the Back Cover:

Waste Matters is the first collection of sociologically informed approaches to be published on the globally important, yet largely under-researched, topic of food waste. In recent years, social scientists have begun to conceptualize waste as dynamic matter that shapes processes of cultural and economic organization. Bringing together theoretical and empirical contributions from a range of perspectives, these original papers extend such developments to the analysis of food. Individual studies explore the regulation and governance of food systems; the dynamics of social and domestic practice; the materiality of foodstuffs and associated technologies; the shifting entanglements and arrangements that shape how things are valued; and the categorization and circulation of food and waste. Taken together, these analyses not only highlight the various ways in which social science can inform an issue central to public and policy agendas, but also demonstrate the significance of food waste for a number of contemporary issues in sociology and social theory.
