Building the Transformative Consumer Research Community: Opportunities and Obstacles For Rising Scholars

The purpose of this roundtable discussion is to hear from researchers who are at the early stages of their career yet are passionate about working on pressing social issues within consumer research. These emerging scholars are the experts on the hurdles facing colleagues who hope to pursue TCR. These scholars can raise awareness about the challenges and opportunities confronting people who want to pursue this research agenda, as well as the type of support that they need. Themes from a pre-conference electronic deliberation by rising TCR scholars will guide a problem solving session among senior and junior researchers. There are several potentially valuable outcomes of this roundtable. Perhaps the most immediate and direct outcome will be identifying and exploring the informal network of researchers interested in TCR and creating a database of TCR researchers and their research interests.
