The Centre for Development and the Environment (SUM) at University of Oslo invites applications to the doctoral course ‘Consumption, Capitalism and Everyday Life: Understanding the Social Dimensions of the Growth Imperative’ run by its research area unit on Energy and Consumption, and the SUM Research School. The course will be held 8 – 10 December 2014. The application deadline is 15 September. 

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.
