Circulating waste,circulating bodies ?: A critical review of E-wastetrade

Abstract : This review article uses India'se-waste economy to examine changes in the circular economy.Today,due to a mix of consumptive economies, urban ecological concerns and its disposal in the informal economy, e-waste governance is a critical issue for the country like it is elsewhere. Drawing on preliminary ethnographic findings in the e-waste sector in Jaipur,this review challenges some of the findings on surplus labour by observing the long standing domination of caste and kinship structures in the domestic e-wastetrade. I argue that we need to study expanding spatialities of e-waste through multi-site ethnographies and a focus on context specificities that would enrich our theorization of waste.
