Georgiana Grigore is an Associate Professor in Marketing at the School of Business, University of Leicester. Georgiana's research has focused on the intersections between corporate social responsibility and marketing, including changes that result from digital media. Based on funded grants from the British Academy and from the Arthur Page Centre, and drawing from sociological and psychological theory, she has also examined the experiences of those working in responsibility roles in different European cultures, noting how their lived experiences impact on how corporate social responsibility gets done, or otherwise. Her recent interests include the impact of Covid on consumer culture and particularly how our reflections (in the UK) on experiences of lockdown have resulted in people questioning their work and spend lifestyles. She is also currently involved with a project to establish marketing strategies for a UK National Conservation Centre. In 2012, she co-founded an annual international conference in Social Responsibility, Ethics and Sustainable Business that has built a network of CSR researchers and practitioners across Europe and beyond. She has published edited collection book series, and journal articles including in Journal of Business Ethics, Marketing Theory, Organization, Journal of Business Research, or Internet Research.
Mike Molesworth is an Associate Professor in Marketing at Birmingham Business School at the University of Birmingham. He has been researching critical aspects of consumer culture and marketing for over 20 years drawing from sociological and psychological traditions to examine a range of topics including education, digital goods, and sharing and possession. Much of this work has questioned why we buy what we buy, implicitly arguing that consumption is wasteful, and that marketing is manipulative. His recent work also considers corporate social responsibilities and so takes a more explicitly ethical turn. His research has been published in leading journals including Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Business Research, Marketing Theory, Internet Research, and Organization. His current research interests include the impact of Covid on consumer culture and particularly how our reflections (in the UK) on experiences of lockdown have resulted in people questioning their work and spend lifestyles. This has led to an observation that too much research on sustainable consumer practices focusses on 'additive' logics (consumers should buy more sustainable goods), whereas what we need is more focus on 'subtractive' consumer cultures, i.e., where people consume less and do more to enjoy what they have.
