The Association for Research in Cultures of Young People invites proposals from scholars and practitioners in all areas for papers that address any aspect of marketing and cultures of young people. These papers are for a panel at the Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences at Carleton University (23-31 May 2009).

Papers might consider:

  • The ways in which young people are interpellated into consumer culture;
  • How cultures of young people are exploited by and themselves exploit marketing strategies;
  • Or, the way that cultures of young people are used to market commodities to other age groups.

Please send proposals (700 words maximum) by e-mail or disk, in Microsoft Word or RTF format, by 15 November 2008 to:
