Conference Theme: The Future

We would like to envision the future of CCT Consortium as it is expanding and building a culture and capacity. In doing so, we would ask participants to imagine the future of our institution, emergent inquiries, and new fruitful paths for contributions when they envision and craft their submissions. The
CCT 2019 Conference aims thus to provoke a renewed sense of urgency, passion and interest for furthering consumer research that matters, fascinates, and challenges current theories and established notions.

The theme of this year’s conference is The Future. As chairs, we aim to provide a reflection on future as a context of inquiry as well as the future of the CCT as an emergent academic community. We seek to generate spaces for different opportunities for people to present their ideas and provide spaces to 2 network, collaborate and reflect. We will facilitate forums that are both conventional (e.g.: Competitive Papers and Special Sessions), and beyond (e.g.: Art Gallery, Performative Work and Poetry). We hope that this conference will serve as a moment of agenda setting and inspiration for the future.
Submissions must be original work and should not have been presented at a past CCT or any other conference before. Submission instructions for each track are offered below. Please direct any general inquiries to the conference email:

This year, for the first time, all accepted work will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Authors will have a choice between an extended abstract and a full paper.
