About this Centre

Led by Professor Maria Piacentini, this Centre (CCI) builds on the research excellence and the international, interdisciplinary networks of colleagues in the Department of Marketing. We have expertise in all aspects of consumption, from a focus on consumer culture theory and the sociology of consumption and markets, through to experimental work in the domain of consumer psychology.

Our work thus far has had an emphasis on consumption-related issues linked to health and consumer well being, including: alcohol consumption; excessive food consumption; parenting practices and consumption; health and well being; sustainable consumption; religious consumption; online consumption; youth and consumption; and health communications.
