We are pleased to invite you to the 15th Dangerous Consumptions Colloquium to be held on December 4th & 5th at the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia. The Dangerous Consumptions Colloquium draws on social, cultural and critical theory to discuss research on any forms of ‘dangerous’, ‘risky’ and contested consumption. We encourage presentations from critical, social and cultural studies perspectives exploring topics as diverse as: alcohol, tobacco, pharmaceuticals, coffee, sugar, illicit drugs, gambling, sexuality, reproduction, the Internet, social media, media forms/popular culture, pornography, fossil fuels, food and animals. Take this opportunity to discuss adventurous ideas and theories related to your work with a friendly audience. The Colloquium runs over two days with a single stream of papers (no concurrent sessions). This gives participants the opportunity to share ideas and understandings from different perspectives and enter into collaborative discussions about dangerous consumptions and the conceptual approaches used to make sense of them.
