Finding and Making Place in Consumer Culture Theory Research

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


We challenge extant conceptualizations of place as a context or object of consumption. In contrast to essentialist notions of commercial scapes and contested imaginaries, we bring forth a critical relational ontology and the concept of “dialectical utopianism” to advance discussions on place in CCT research.
