Grace Akese (Memorial University)

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Geography at Memorial University. My current project explores the politics of doing e-waste science and advocacy in Agbogbloshie, Agbogbloshie, a scrap market in Accra, Ghana that has become a popularized zone of electronic waste (e-waste) advocacy and science. My research is part of a bigger multi-year Reassembling Rubbish project led by Dr. Josh Lepawsky.
