This conference analyses the recent emergence, in Europe and beyond, of new forms of ethical, sustainable and elite consumption and the associated social movements, identity politics and processes of commodification. It approaches these shifts as an emerging cultural complex termed ‘eco-chic’. Eco-chic is both the product of and a move against globalization processes. It is a set of practices, an ideological frame and a marketing strategy, that have emerged in a wide range of socio-geographical loci.
