Konsumtionskulturteori och mode (CCF)

Course description


Level, Eligibility and Prerequisites
The course introduces students to Consumer Culture Theory and uses this theoretical backdrop to a discussion
about fashion related issues. In the global marketplace, companies and consumers are constantly negotiating
over meanings. Students are therefore introduced to the dialectical processes between firms and consumers in
which the meanings of the market are created. Having completed the course students should be able to explain
the role consumption, brands and advertising play in shaping views of fashion in contemporary consumer
cultures.

Please Note !


There will be no new admissions to this course.
