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:
The academic programme will start on June 9th, early in the morning and finish on June 10th in the afternoon at around 6 pm. A welcome reception will be organised on June 8th, late afternoon. The workshop dinner will be organised this year on Thursday, June 9th.
Online submission will be open soon
