    Abstract

    © 2019, © 2019 ASLE-UKI. This article is an exploration of the possibilities of interdisciplinary, imaginative and collaborative methodologies in generating understandings of the affective nature of litter in everyday life. It is a critical intervention into the current proliferation of ‘solution-focused’ academic waste studies, asserting that it is essential to attend to the complex intersectionality of the subject and to develop new understandings through the use of innovative methodologies. The article is structured around two inter-related sections. The first consists of six performative texts in the manner of an instructive guidebook, interspersed with visual and literary forms of investigation: a series of photographs, a poem and a broadside publication. The second is a reflection on the various modes of attention that informed the research: it functions as a field guide to the potential of interdisciplinary, imaginative and collaborative methodologies for revealing new ways of thinking about relationships to place, people and materiality.
