Roundtables afford attendees the opportunity to coalesce around a particular topic or context and communicate differently from traditional special or competitive sessions. Roundtables are flexible in terms of structure and organization and should be designed to encourage scholars with similar interests to openly discuss their topics of interest. We also invite submissions of roundtables that establish discussion between CCT and neighboring fields of investigation, such as (but not limited to) market studies, sociology of consumption, and market anthropology.

Proposed ninety-minute sessions should include a one-page summary of the topic along with complete contact information for the roundtable organizer. In addition, please provide a list of participants who have agreed to attend the conference in case the roundtable proposal is accepted.

In the case of workshop submissions, the workshop organizers are invited to state: (1) the purpose of the workshop, with an emphasis on the benefits for participants; (2) a tentative schedule of activities for the 90-minute session as well as any pre-workshop activities that might be required of participants; (3) an estimated number of total participants; (4) a list of committed participants; and (5) complete contact information of the workshop organizers. Organizers must be willing to promote their workshops in order to assure critical mass.

Please send your submissions directly to the track chairs.

The companion document (as a PDF) and the submission should include a title, a list of participants and creators, full contact information for at least one presenter, summary overview of the submission, the form, methodologies, and approach used, a statement of how the work will contribute to an enriched understanding of consumer culture, and instructions for accessing the submission for review.

Use the most appropriate and practical medium for sending audio files (preferably Mp3). All video submissions should be uploaded onto Vimeo ( and then a video link and password included to the companion document. All submission will undergo a double-blind peer review process.

A poetry session is a regular feature of the CCT Conference. Participating poets perform original work inspired by their research. Session organizers publish a volume of poetry, which is distributed on site, so that audience members can participate more fully.

Submit up to four completed poems (no more than four pages) directly to the track chairs for peer review. Submissions must include (1) an author page with complete contact information and the titles of the submitted poems, and (2) the poems, each beginning on a fresh page with no identifying author information.

We seek CCT work created or communicated through visual aesthetic forms. Accepted submissions will be displayed in gallery format. We invite work in such forms as photography, drawings, paintings, sculpture and mixed media. We encourage submissions to fit within a reasonable space

and either mounted on a poster board (2m x 1m) or displayed in a freestanding manner. Please discuss any size specifications beyond these boundaries with the track chairs. The track chairs will work with the conference organizers to ensure space requirements but participants will be personally responsible for any costs of transport and display of pieces.

Submit no more than two entries as digital photos of your original work directly to the track curators. One entry may consist of multiple images or components (e.g., a photo collage), but, in this case, cannot exceed five images/components. Each submission must be accompanied by a 500-1000 word abstract which describes how it is relevant to consumer culture, how it can enrich our understanding of theory or research, why the medium was chosen, as well as the size dimensions and how you would prefer your submission to be displayed. Please note that the abstract plays a central role in the review process.

Because of the early deadline, we will also be accepting partially completed work (e.g. sketches, partial paintings or sculptures). In this case, the submission needs to show clearly what the final piece will look like. Moreover, partially completed work will be accepted conditionally, pending submission of the complete components (e.g., sketch/equivalent and abstract) by May 1, 2018.

Please discuss your submission with the curators if you wish to work outside of these guidelines.
