What roles and responsibilities regarding consumption are related to being a citizen and consumer respectively? What is the role of different stakeholders in this challenge?

How are different aspects of consumption practices – cultural, embodied, material and immaterial, experienced and related? How might we imagine consumption differently?

What advances in sociological theory and methodology help us understand the current conjecture, and imagine alternatives?

How might the ethics and politics of consumption serve as a tool for imagining new interconnections among economies, governments and individuals?

This interim meeting encourages participants to reflect on the contribution that sociologies of consumption can offer towards not only an understanding of current consumer societies, but also the reconfiguration of social processes and conditions of consumption.

We are happy to announce that the midterm conference of the Research Network of Sociology of Consumption of the European Sociological Association will be held in Bologna in 2016.
