The proposed seminar provides participants with a better understanding of society and how it affects the humans within it. Specifically, the seminar will focus on helping participants understand consumer culture with explicit attention placed on how identity is constructed and conveyed.
Interdisciplinary discussion will focus on the relational aspects of consumer culture ? relationships between individuals and between individuals and God (spirituality/religion). Discussion will also examine the ramifications that the relational aspects of consumer culture have for different disciplines.
