and Culture. Ed. Jonathan Schroeder.
"An outlet for the rich but largely unrepresented critical and groundbreaking
scholarship which focuses on consumerism and the market as the site of social
behavior, representation and discourse, Consumption, Markets and Cultures encourages
interdisciplinary discussion in the areas of consumer culture, consumption, colonialism,
globalization, communications, marketing, management, cultural studies and labor
conditions. Combining theories of culture, media, gender and anthropology with
methods of analyses in literary criticism, semiology and business management,
the journal is international in its scope while being critical, challenging and
iconoclastic in its aims."
