Thinking About Trash

Our “Big Question” feature from the newest issue of Iowa Alumni Magazine asks: “What does our garbage say?” We get some fascinating insights from Margaret Beck, an assistant professor of anthropology at the UI, including how wealthy and advanced a society is just by examining its waste.

“Trash is the raw, unfiltered truth about how a society lives,” she says.
