[6/7/2016] “Probably the biggest influence plastic has had on consumers is teaching them how to waste. It is wrong to blame consumers for being wasteful, this practice has been foisted on them.” So says Gay Hawkins, Professor of Cultural Studies and Social Theory at Western Sydney University. She studies the role of plastics in consumer society and visited Centre for Consumer Science 13-18th of June 2016. Read an interview about her research..
Centre for Consumer Science, CFK, was established in 2001 and is the leading research centre in Sweden operating in the field of consumer research. The CFK is a meeting place for researchers from different disciplines. A deeper, more balanced understanding of consumption can be achieved by working together in interdisciplinary teams. Current research themes are: Gender, fashion and design, Culture, Digitalization, Food, Mobility and National consumption patterns.
