Biosociality in Consumer Research

This special session explores a simultaneous acknowledgement of the sociality of the biological and the biologicality of the social without recourse to universalizing genetic reductionisms. We aim to open investigations and conversations addressing the possibility of a biosocial renewal of thought in consumer culture theory and  more sustainable consumption systems.
