Dear MSA Listserv moderator,

I hope that you can post the following academic journal announcement for *NANO:
New American Notes Online*, an interdisciplinary humanities journal, on
your listserv:


Just Published: Issue 7 of *NANO: New American Notes Online*


*NANO: New American Notes Online*, a City Tech interdisciplinary journal,
has officially published Issue 7: The Aesthetics of Trash. This special
issue is the result of a collaboration between guest editors David Banash
(Western Illinois University) and John DeGregorio (University of Iowa), the
seven article authors, and *NANO*'s editorial team: Sean Scanlan, Ruth
Garcia, and Rebecca Devers.

This special issue of *NANO* asks questions about the nature of art,
recycling, and trash. The mix of points-of-view from artists, gallery
curators, and academics provides not just an overview of what is happening
in term of trash, recycling, and ideas of new art, but also the changing
ways that consumers buy, sell, and understand art. From interpretations of
the Pixar/Disney film WALL-E to recycling techno trash, from beautiful
waste to hoarding, this special issue asks readers to rethink what
happens--and what should happen--to household and industrial waste.
