8th International Child and Teen Consumption Conference
"Cultural and Creative IndustrieS of Childhood and Youth"
Angoulême, 3 - 6 April 2018
For the third time, the CCT community came to Europe, and after the UK and Finland, it was France's turn to host our annual Conference. As reminded by Benoit Heilbrunn’s keynote speech during the 2015 CCTC in Fayetteville, Arkansas, French theory is a major source of influence in our understanding of culture, society, consumption and marketing. For the CCTC’s eleventh anniversary, we would like Lille to become a cosmopolitan meeting place of ideas enabling cross-fertilization between local and global intellectual traditions.
2nd International Colloquium on Kids and Retailing: “Future Trends”
Budapest, 18th – 19th June 2015
The 2015 Asia-Pacific Association for Consumer Research Conference was co-hosted by the University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong in Hong Kong. It was held at the Business School Building in the Chinese University of Hong Kong from Friday, 19th June to Sunday, 21st June 2015.
The 10th annual Consumer Culture Theory conference was hosted by the University of Arkansas.
Children and youth food practices are becoming increasingly perceived as problematic, reflecting concerns on childhood overweight and obesity rates in several countries. Apart from issues with excess food, food deficit problems (malnutrition, food security) are becoming ever more present in both developed and developing countries, since the rise in fuel, energy and food prices (in the aftermath of the 2007-2008 crises and the austerity measures forcefully applied in some countries).
Scholars from around the globe were called upon to cast a critical look on the history of marketing and how these outputs might be taken to reflect on past epochs to enhance our understanding.
This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary conference project will take place at Mansfield College in Oxford, UK, from the 17th to the 19th July 2014. It seeks to investigate and explore all aspects of childhood. The nature of childhood and its significance as a separate phase of life is viewed quite differently in different cultures and in different historical eras. This conference will look at all aspects of the experience of childhood as well as the social, cultural, historical and psychological perceptions of children and childhood.
