The Politics of Consumption as a Form of Participation: Media Activism and Creative Tactics
The talk addresses some of the key debates around the politics of consumption: can consumption be a form of political participation? Under which conditions does consumer activism flourish? Does consumer citizenship foster a revised version of citizenship which can engage the disengaged? Specifically, the discussion will elaborate on the salience of the phenomenon of political consumerism (Micheletti, 2003; Stolle and Micheletti, 2013; Lekakis, 2013) and explore it through a variety of case studies in the contemporary context of Europe.
