Child and Teen Consumption 2010
- Interdisciplinarity, theory and practice -
BACKGROUND AND MISSION
This conference aims to establish and continue a dialogue between specialists from a variety of academic disciplines in order to explore the phenomenon of children and teens as consumers in today’s society.
The first international conference was held at the European Centre for Children’s Products, Faculty of Business Administration, University of Poitiers, France 2004. The conference hosted 200 participants representing researchers and practitioners as well as students. Due to the success of this first meeting, it was agreed to make this a biannual event. The Copenhagen Business School hosted the second conference 2006 and the Norwegian Centre for Child Research the third 2008. The Department of Child Studies at Linköping University in Sweden now welcomes you to join us in creating a tradition worthy of the growing academic interest in the field.
The conference will take place June 21-23, 2010, at the beautiful historical industrial settings of Campus Norrköping.
