*Call for Papers: *NZGS-IAG 2018, University of Auckland, 12-14 July, 2018

*Session Title: *New consumption geographies

*Key words:* consumption, household, technology, material culture,

Household consumption has immense environmental consequences, contributing
over 60% of global GHG emissions (Ivanova et al. 2016). However the
character of consumption is changing, along with changes in urban and rural
forms, technology (especially digital technologies), and forms of work and
leisure. Too little is known about how these changes are unfolding across
the population. Past consumption research highlighted the importance of
social motives, such as care-giving and social status (Gronow and Warde
2002), sociality and reciprocity (Mansvelt 2005), yet it is unclear how
these motives will intersect with new forms of consumption. Furthermore,
there is much to learn about how shifts in the nature of consumption are
experienced in place by people of different ages, ethnicities, income and
with different living arrangements (Lane and Gorman-Murray 2011).

We invite papers that examine the theme of changing consumption, drawing on
a wide range of conceptual and methodological approaches including social
practice theory, material culture studies, assemblage approaches and the
sharing economy. Topics could include,

·         Digital consumption

·         Collaborative consumption

·         Gender, sexuality and consumption

·         Consumption and the life course

·         Consumption and housing form – e.g. high rise apartments

·         Anti-consumerism and downshifting

·         Wealth and conspicuous consumption

·         Reuse, remaking and recycling.

Please submit paper titles and abstracts to the session organisers by 31
