Students are invited to attend XE's Discard Studies course featuring guest speaker Commissioner Grayson tonight, Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 6:00pm.
From Professor Robin Nagle:
This semester's XE seminar on Discard Studies considers varieties, consequences, and politics of waste, both broadly and specifically defined. Tonight's class welcomes a special guest: Ed Grayson, Commissioner of the New York City Department of Sanitation, will share some of the surprising challenges, complexities, and achievements of the DSNY, and explain some of the many ways in which its workforce stands as a first guardian of public health. Commissioner Grayson is one of the youngest people to ever serve in the title, and one of only six in the history of the agency who started on the street behind a collection truck. He is also one of the most engaging and effective public speakers I've ever heard.
