    The Crisis and Contradictions of Consumption Registration is now closed. Contact Dan Cook (dtcook@camden.rutgers.edu) if you wish to attend. The current global economic downturn has brought into relief key tensions and fissures that some say are endemic to consumer capitalism. In an effort to keep pace with idealized visions and versions of the good life, consumers for decades had collectively engaged in personal and household deficit livingrisky practices primed and enabled by corporate strategy and government monetary policies. Now that this house of cards has tumbled and left many in dire circumstances, most publicly iterated "common sense" posits a return to consumption levels of the past while, at the same time, warning of remaining in or living in debt. Consumption appears as both the problem and solution. Nonetheless, as the crisis affects the U.S. and the EU in particular ways, China, India and their major trading partners continue growing and consuming at breakneck speed. At the same time US economic policy seeks to make Chinese goods more expensive, perhaps signaling a long-term Eastward shift of the epicenter of consumerism. Few raise questions about this schizoid process or about lessons learned regarding social, economic and environmental costs of unchecked consumerism. The Consumer Studies Research Network (http://csrn.camden.rutgers.edu/) is sponsoring a one-day conference on The Crisis and Contradictions of Consumption to be held on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Friday, August 19, 2011. There will be a Graduate Student Workshop where students will have papers commented on by faculty mentors. Invited Panel The highlight of the conference will be a Spotlight Panel of scholars addressing conference theme. We are pleased to announce George Ritzer and Robert Manning will participate in the panel. George Ritzer is Distinguished University Professor at the University of Maryland and author of numerous books and essays on consumer society and social theory, including the widely read The McDonaldizatoin of Society. (http://www.bsos.umd.edu/socy/People/gritzer.html). Robert Manning, author of Credit Card Nation and maker of the documentary film In Debt We Trust, is President of the Responsible Debt Relief Institute and has worked on issues of consumption, debt and banking for more than a decade (http://www.creditcardnation.com/). Registration is now closed. Contact Dan Cook (dtcook@camden.rutgers.edu) if you wish to attend. The CSRN, in existence for 12 years and loosely affiliated with the American Sociological Association, seeks to foster dialogue and debate among those who are interested in and concerned about the place of goods and commodities in social life. Contact Dan Cook (dtcook@camden.rutgers.edu) or visit http://csrn.camden.rutgers.edu/ where present and past newsletters and a partial list of members can be found. Conference Lodging CSRN conference attendees may register for the special rate of $99/night (plus tax) at the Embassy Suites hotel. This rate includes a full, hot breakfast and is lower than the rate at Ceasar's Palace for those nights where the ASA is being held. It is walking distance from the CSRN conference site.

    I'm Jess J from DBBS Ent. The 5th annual "Get Money Stop Hatin" Tour is officially kicking off October 25th in Oklahoma City. We'll be in Houston November 9th at Azteca's. The last tour covered 36 cities and every show was a success. We expect this time to be even bigger & better. Past tours have been mostly Hip Hop & R&B, but we want it to be much more diverse moving forward. I’m in the process of searching for a band and a few talented artists to work with and Co-Headline this year’s tour with me. We plan on doing 50 cities between now and next summer. If you or anybody you know wants to perform or be a part of this tour, contact my manager Tug at 818-470-9120 or getmoneystophatintour@gmail.com. If he don’t answer, leave a voicemail or send a text. He’ll definitely get back to you asap. I’ve been using this tour to connect with artists, DJs, producers, promoters, promo teams, photographers, etc, in different cities all over the country. We’re definitely looking for talent to work with for big things we have planned in the future. Whatever it takes to elevate this brand to the highest possible level . We show love to everyone out here working hard, regardless of genre. We can get in the studio or whatever when I touch down. I mix, master, and produce as well.
