Consumer Culture Theory Conference 2023
SAVE THE DATE - The 2023 Consumer Culture Theory Conference will be held at the Lund University campus in the centre of medieval city of Lund, Sweden. CCTC 2023 is an in-person event, bringing the Consumer Culture Theory community closer together. The theme for 2023 is Utopia Revisited.
What happens after disruptions? Where do we go from there? Is there even a place to go? In the wake of disruptions, unwritten futures present themselves and new dreams are dreamt. Imaginaries are created and revisited and new promises are made. Old hopes are brought back to life again. Given the last decade of despair – highlighted by movements such as Black Lives Matter and #MeToo and manifested in an increasingly urgent climate crisis, a global pandemic, inflation, far-right politics on the rise and, today, war – there are reasons to rethink the foundations of the consumer cultural game we play.
