Doctoral course on Consumption, Capitalism and Everyday Life at University of Oslo
December 8, 2014 - 00:00-December 10, 2014 - 00:00
The principal objective of this PhD course is to connect “development studies” and “consumption studies”. It approaches the linkages between consumption and socio-economic change from different disciplinary perspectives, drawing on theoretical approaches as well as cases from the global North and South in an attempt to understand the many connections and disconnections between development and consumption.
The interdisciplinary nature of the course will appeal to doctoral students from a variety of backgrounds, such as anthropology, sociology, geography, political science, development studies, economics and political economy. Lecturers include Alan Warde, Professor of Sociology, University of Manchester, UK; Richard Wilk, Professor of Anthropology, Indiana University, USA; and Hal Wilhite, Professor of Anthropology, SUM, University of Oslo.
Application deadline:15 September.
