Women and Consumption

In this talk, Dr. Emma Casey of Northumbria University will talk about women’s consumption, home cultures and the domestic economy.
Dr. Casey’s interest in domestic life stems from an ongoing commitment to readdressing the relative lack of prominence of sociological studies of women’s everyday lives and experiences. She is on the Editorial Board of Sociology, the flagship journal of the British Sociological Association, and is a member of the ESRC Peer Review College.
This talk is part of the Shift and Signal School, three days of workshops, sharing, live recordings and celebration of our commitment to work together for a flourishing future.
Shift and Signal is a commission by Dr Alex Lockwood, that creates a space in which to imagine how we can go deeper in our adaptations to the crises of the contemporary moment such as social inequality, climate change, and species extinction. The project is an attempt to shift us beyond the usual stuck conversations about how we implement change, and signal towards better ways of living that are now appearing.
The Shift and Signal School is part of Deep Adaptation. An ongoing programme of commissions, talks, events and workshops looking at how current social, civic and economic issues can be understood in relation to climate change.
