We are pleased to invite you to the 14th Dangerous Consumptions Colloquium to be held on November 24th & 25th at Victoria University’s Kelburn Campus. This year’s Colloquium is a joint collaboration between Victoria University, Wellington and Massey University’s Wellington Campus.
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, sex, IVF, surrogacy, the Internet, social media, media forms/popular culture, pornography, human hair, clothing, fossil fuels, food and animals.
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.
Please submit abstracts of no more than 300 words to Fiona Hutton email@example.com by Monday 3rd October.
Each paper will have a 20 minute slot and presenters can choose how to use this time. For example, presenters can have a 15 minute paper with 5 minutes for questions or a 10 minute paper with 10 minutes for questions. There will be an additional 10 minute question time at the end of each session. We also encourage alternative presentation formats such as plays, creative non-fiction, poetry etc.

Please register by Friday 14th October.
Registrations costs NZ$150, with a limited number of free places for postgraduate students (priority will be given to those presenting)
We encourage academics, researchers and students to circulate details of this event within their own relevant networks. We look forward to seeing you at this year’s colloquium!
All the best,
Fiona Hutton and Antonia Lyons, conference convenors
