In 2018, the lifestyle research center organized a seminar on taste. Following this event, Consumption, Markets & Culture published a special issue on taste edited by Anissa Pomiès (emlyon business schjool), Zeynep Arsel (Concordia University), and Jonathan Bean (University of Arizona).

We  are  thrilled  to  announce  that  Taste  Research  Day II, second edition  of  the successful prior event, is scheduled on
May 27, 2021 (2:00 PM – 6:00 PM CET / Paris Time). The goal of this seminar is to understand taste through different perspectives. To do so, we organize a polyphonic discussion gathering academics from different fields, and professionals of taste. We also aim to create an inclusive and horizontal event that gives room to junior and experienced scholars.

Because the sanitary situation is still uncertain, we set up a 100% online event. Despite this format, the spirit of Taste Research Day remains the same. Concretely, there will be three panels of two persons each:
