Welcome to The Chicago Consumer Culture Community (C4).  C4 is for anyone visiting or living in the greater Chicago area who has an interest in research and insights about consumer culture and consumer culture theory (CCT).

We hold events about once a month during the school year, usually from 12:00 - 1:30 PM. For the 2014-15 school year, our events will take place on Oct 3, Nov 14, Feb 6, Mar 6, Apr 3 and May 8.

All events are held in downtown Chicago at the Marketing Department, DePaul Center, 1 East Jackson Blvd. (at the corner of State and Jackson). For more detailed location information, click "FAQs" (to the right) and scroll down to the last question.
