In Pursuit of Luxury — What Next?

Date: December 10, 2020

Time: 14:00-18:00 GMT

We are delighted to announce In Pursuit of Luxury – What Next? a virtual symposium.

What Next takes a tour of our two Special Issue journals; Producing Luxury and the Space of Luxury. The authors discuss and debate their articles and whether anything has changed in the ever-changing world of luxury since publication, and of course what next?

Our symposium also marks a milestone in luxury publications. Christopher Berry’s seminal monograph, The Idea of Luxury is marking its 25th year since it was first published. To mark this occasion Chris will be sharing his thoughts on luxury in all its guises. A 25 year reflection. 

Chris will also be in conversation with Father Andrew O’Connor discussing the vice and virtue of luxury. They will discuss luxury as a concept and the ethical and moral questions surrounding it. They will also address topics such as sustainability, waste, conspicuous consumption, the role of technology and innovation, and social justice.

The “In Conversation” and panel discussions will be followed by a question and answer session.

The price of the ticket includes entry to the symposium and one copy of one of our Special Issue Journals. At time of booking select which issue you would like to receive.
