2016 April Earth Week Electronic Life Histories Event

With the Electronic Life Histories Team, hosted a symposium/exhibit/music event at the Co-Recreational Center at Purdue University. We welcomed Dr. Peter Little (Rhode Island College), Grace Akese (Memorial University), Dr. Lindsay Payne (Purdue University), Thom Davis (Oscar Winski Recycling), and Vanessa Rainwater (Tippecanoe County Solid Waste Management District) to our panels. Workshops and demonstrations were held by the Electronic Waste Orchestra and musical performances by Zimdiana. Check out the project and more about the event here. This project is funded by the Mellon Grand Challenge Exploratory Award – Purdue University Local and Global Perspectives on E-waste: Integrating the Humanities, Social Science, and Engineering to Examine the Life Cycle of Electronics.
