Just Published: Consumer Culture Theory, Volume 18

Edited by Nil Ozcaglar-Toulouse, Diego Rinallo and Russell W. Belk

The chapters in this volume are selected from the best papers presented at the 11th Annual Consumer Culture Theory Conference held in Lille, France in July 2016. The diverse interpretive research and theory represented in this volume provides the reader with intellectually stimulating opportunities to examine the intersections between a variety of topics that represent the cutting edge in consumer research. These studies draw on an array of qualitative methodologies and the substantive topics represent crucial issues for our times.


Editorial Objectives of the Series

Consumer research is both a micro managerial topic highlighting issues that are potentially relevant to improving marketing effectiveness and a macro sociological topic considering the nature of consumption and its effect on human well-being. The series covers a range of topics employing both quantitative and qualitative research methods. These topics range from advertising effects and brand meanings to materialism and consumer culture. Because consumer behavior is such a central part of contemporary life, papers in these volumes address the role of consuming at the levels of individuals and organizations, families and groups, and cultures and subcultures. Perspectives drawing on psychology, sociology, communications, history, anthropology and religion can all be found within its pages. The series is relevant to each of these disciplines as well as consumer behavior scholars seeking the latest in consumer research, research methods and theory.
