The Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences sponsored thematic project ‘Inventing and Reinventing the Irish woman, 1760 to 2000’ invites proposals for research papers to be delivered at ‘Inventing the Gendered Consumer from the early modern to post modern period’ to be held on Friday and Saturday, 21 and 22 May 2010 in the University of Limerick, Limerick, Ireland.
This interdisciplinary conference welcomes papers dealing with the conference theme of ‘Inventing the gendered consumer from the early modern to post modern period’. The project team is particularly interested in papers that deal with the relationship between gender and the growth of consumerism but also the role of class, race, identity, age. The following questions are of interest also, how and when were consumers created? What role did advertising or the development of the department store have in the process? Do shopping patterns change over time and in different places? How is the consumer reflected in historical and/or literary sources? The myth of consumerism?
If you would like to present a research paper at the conference, email a proposal to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
This proposal must include:
1) the title of the paper
2) contact information (address, telephone, e-mail)
3) a one-paragraph biography
4) an abstract of no more than 300 words
You can also suggest a panel with two papers. Please include the information requested above for each proposed panellist. All information must be provided by e-mail.
