Sophie Dubuisson-Quellier on tour

November 10, 2013 | By francecanadaculture Books

French sociologist Sophie Dubuisson-Quellier was in Canada from November 19 to 22 to present her book Ethical Consumption published in English translation by the Canadian company Fernwood Publishing.

In Vancouver, at the invitation of SFU Woodward’s, Sophie Dubuisson-Quellier described her vision of the ’Ethical Consumerism’. In Toronto, she gave a public talk at York University’s Department of Sociology and explained how, from her point of view, ethical consumption can create a space for the construction of social responsibility.

Ethical consumerism, the English translation of La consommation engagée, has been supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development as part of the translation grant program.
