Final programme HERE.
The biennial EIASM Interpretive Consumer Research Workshop will be held in Liverpool. The workshop attracts established and emerging scholars mainly, but not exclusively, from Europe. We are interested in examining the symbolic, socio-cultural, historical, ideological and experiential aspects of consumption and we draw our theoretical inspiration from a wide variety of research traditions from the social sciences, arts and humanities. A key feature of the event, that makes it different from a typical conference, is that we strive to maintain the workshop spirit. This means that it is relatively small and intimate and offers an opportunity to discuss ideas in an informal, friendly and supportive atmosphere. Our hope is to run a fully in person face-to-face event.
To foster dialogue and debate, the focus will continue to be theoretical and methodological innovation in interpretive consumer research; that is, we are not overly concerned with empirically grounded papers. We are inviting papers, videographies, and special sessions (a series of three papers focused around a specific theoretical or methodological issue). In addition, we welcome suggestions for roundtable discussions from a group of scholars focused on a substantive theme.
We invite submissions, special sessions and roundtables that address (but are not limited to) the following themes:
- Methodological innovation in interpretive consumer research;
- Theoretical approaches that provide new or alternative ways of understanding consumers, consumption and consumer culture (PhD students can submit the theoretical frameworks that underpin their doctoral theses);
- Concepts that help us reimagine consumption within an increasingly unsettled global landscape;
- Recognition of how Covid encouraged a rethink of our research priorities towards ‘phenomena that matter’;
- New developments in theoretical/philosophical approaches that have relevance to consumer researchers in light of larger societal challenges (inequality, sustainability etc.)
- New ideas that are at the early stage of conceptual/ theoretical development;
- The examination of under theorised domains of consumer action and experience;
- Critical reviews of existing theoretical/methodological approaches.
