1 VIINATIONAL Meeting on Consumption Studies III Portuguese-Brazilian Meeting on Consumption Studies I Latin-American Meeting on Consumption Studies Call for Papers 7º ENEC September 24, 25, and 26, am to 7pm Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro (Puc-Rio) Rua Marques de São Vicente, Gávea - Rio de Janeiro/RJ Contested Markets The new moral, ethical, religious and legal frontiers
2 main theme New markets emerge and existing markets expand through the pressure, challenges and negotiations of different actors around a society s admissible levels of commodification. Today, new spheres of monetary Exchange are being created whose principal characteristic is the stretching of the moral, ethical, environmental, religious and legal limits of existing markets. In addition, commodification is now advancing into a range of social activities which were previously conducted independently of the market. This development gives rise to diverse actions and reactions requiring new negotiations, conventions and institutional underpinnings. It is precisely this process of commodification extending into areas where, previously, market criteria were not present and the contestation and regulations which this is provoking which will be at the centre of our discussions at the VII ENEC. Of particular note in this context is the transformation of numerous social practices such as the giving of presents, donations, friendship and love relations which have traditionally been subject to non-market logics and patterns of behaviour and moral control into services, mostly private, which are then offered to consumers. At the same time, long-established practices, such as caring for children, the sick, the old and for domestic pets, become market segments. A similar process is also occcuring in the case of public goods based on shared citizenship such as health, education, energy, water, mobility and security. In the medical field, scientific advances are transforming reproduction practices establishing new types of relations between people involving different forms of paternity. The expansion of the market to organ transplants challenges not only moral and religious convictions but extends to institutional practices and the organization of public health, exerting strong pressure on the legal and institutional frameworks which support them. Globalization, for its part, places different cultures, religions and legal and institutional arrangements into contact, provoking tensions and dilemmas about the acceptability of different practices. In addition, consumption is increasingly intertwined with socio-environmental concerns as society s attention goes behind the products and services to focus on their conditions of production and distribution. This expansionist dynamic to markets has led to collective mobilizations, both favourable and contrary, focussing on existing regulatory and frameworks and questioning the shifting boundaries between public and private spheres. Tackling these questions places us at the frontier of consumer studies involving a confrontation with the moral, ethical, religious and legal implications of consumption.
