Over the last decade, scholars of U.S. foreign relations and international history have increasingly examined consumption and how it shapes power. Over the same period, researchers on globalization have raised pressing questions about the reach and power of the state. The State of Buying workshop will bring together leading and innovative anthropologists, historians, and sociologists who study global consumption and the impact of consumption on the state to talk about their fields, what we can learn from different disciplinary approaches, and where we should go from here.
This conference is free and open to all students, researchers and faculty.
