Born to Shop? Consumerism and the American Woman, by Jennifer Scanlon, the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of the Humanities in Gender and Women’s Studies at Bowdoin College

We love to joke about women and shopping. Women "shop 'till they drop." "A woman's place is at the mall." It's true that women as a group love to shop; many would rather do so than relax, read a book, or take a walk. But what if we were to take that practice seriously, historically and in contemporary life? What can we make of women's devotion to shopping? Generously sponsored by History; Humanities and Social Sciences; Women’s and Gender Studies.
