Consumerism Class

Next fall, for the undergrads of Rice:

We are going to investigate the art, literature, music and more of consumerism, which spans from the late eighteenth century to now.

The goal is to see how deeply ingrained consumerism is in the way we think, write and read (and otherwise appreciate things), and that this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but certainly one that should be studied.

I'm the author of four books on consumerism including a study of vegetarianism in the Romantic period.
