Anthropology at Work

We are excited to host Department of Sanitation Anthropologist-in-Residence Robin Nagle at our fifth Civic Service Forum event. Robin recently released a book about her experiences and research called "Picking Up: On the Streets and Behind the Trucks with the Sanitation Workers of New York City." Join us for a discussion with Robin after her talk.



Dr. Robin Nagle is an anthropologist whose research focuses on the category of material culture known variously as garbage, rubbish, refuse, trash, or waste. She is particularly interested in its labor and infrastructural requirements in urban contexts. In 2006, Nagle was named anthropologist-in-residence with the Department of Sanitation in New York City. She is working with colleagues in the DSNY and at NYU to organize the Department’s archives, to establish an on-going Oral History Project, to create a Wall of Honor for city Sanitation personnel killed on the job, and to found the city’s Sanitation Museum. Nagle earned her Ph.D. in anthropology from Columbia University in 1994. She first came to NYU as Assistant Dean for Student Affairs and Academic Services within the Graduate School of Arts and Science that same year. She has been director of the Draper Program since 1996.
