Eco-Chic: Connecting Ethical, Sustainable and Elite Consumption. Date: 10-14.10.2011. Site: Linköping, Sweden. Deadline: 30.06.2011


Organiser: The European Science Foundation (ESF) and Linkoeping University (LiU)

Topics:  This  conference  analyses  the  recent  emergence,  in  Europe  and  beyond,  of  new  forms  of  ethical, sustainable  and  elite  consumption  and  the  associated  social  movements,  identity  politics  and  processes  of commodification.

It approaches these shifts as an emerging cultural complex termed „eco-chic‟. Eco-chic is both the product  of  and  a  move  against  globalization  processes.  It  is  a  set  of  practices,  an  ideological  frame  and  a marketing strategy, that have emerged in a wide range of socio-geographical loci.
Language: English  Fee: 380€-820€
