Nobody was Dirty: challenging collective conventions of cleanliness

I presented some of my work at the ESA Consumption Research Conference in Berlin this week. It was a brilliant chance to test some of my ideas on the super intelligent social theorists:  Warde, Halkier, Miles and Truninger were all at the conference which was both exhilarating and nerve wrecking.  Some of my favourite presentations were from Janna Michael on authenticity and hipsters, Tim Harries on frugality and waste and Niklas Woermann who gave an impressive overview of social practice theory (which mostly went over my head).  Steven Miles, editor of the Journal of Consumer Culture gave me the latest issue, which was more exciting than the all fashion goodie bags, ever.  I had a completely amazing time and I’m pretty sure social practice research is what I want to do with the rest of my life.  Here is my powerpoint, let me know what you think, and please feel free to use it: Jack, T. (2012), Nobody was Dirty: challenging collective conventions of cleanliness, ESA Consumption Research Network Interim Meeting, Berlin.
