2013 CHORD Conference Call for Papers:

‘Retailing and the Senses: Historical Perspectives’

5 September 2013

The conference will be held at the:

Marks & Spencer Company Archive, Leeds

The Centre for the History of Retailing and Distribution (CHORD) and the M&S Company Archive invite proposals for papers that explore the relationship between retailing and the senses, in Britain and beyond. We welcome papers focusing on both buying and selling, approaching the topic from any discipline and focusing on any historical period.

We invite contributions that explore the connections between retailing and any one or more of the senses:

o   Sight
o   Smell
o   Taste
o   Touch
o   Hearing

o   … as well as the ‘sixth sense’

Proposals are welcome for 20 minute and for shorter 10 minute papers (all papers will be followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion). To submit a proposal, please send title and abstract of c. 300/400 words to Laura Ugolini at l.ugolini@wlv.ac.uk and Karin Dannehl at k.dannehl2@wlv.ac.uk by 15 April 2013.

For further information, or to discuss ideas before submitting an abstract, please e-mail Karin Dannehl:k.dannehl2@wlv.ac.uk.
