The latest edition of Toxic News is now available

The Toxic News e-magazine was conceived as a result of the European Research Commission funded project Toxic Expertise hosted by the Sociology Department. The project examines competing claims about the health effects of pollution, focusing on the global petrochemical industry.

In this edition Diane Sicotte writes on the toxic relationship between fracking and plastics; Troy D Abel, Jonah White and Stacy Clauson examine environmental injustice in South Seattle; Sarah Marie Wiebe, Jen Bagelman and Laurence Butet-Roch explore the experience of indigenous peoples at the Aamjiwnaang First Nation reserve in Canada's 'Chemical Valley'; Sophia Jaworski suggests we move beyond environmental injustices associated with proximity of industry towards interrogating the toxicity of everyday landscapes. Finally Angelo Raffaele Ippolito explores the moral struggles of a community in Taranto, Southern Italy, faced with industrial pollution from the largest steel mill in Europe.
