Sociology of Consumption and Households

We are interested in practices of consumption and ethics of care. Their material, political and social dimensions are important to better understand health, wellbeing and sustainable development.

Research and projects

At the Sociology of Consumption and Households group, we aim to understand how practices of consumption and care can enable (or impede) health, wellbeing and sustainable development.
