This article has three main aims. The first is to highlight the importance of culture and consumption to contemporary geographical inquiry. The second is to show some of the ways in which culture and consumption have been theorised, especially in the context of the city. The third aim is to explore how consumption and culture have been incorporated into the schemes used by cities as they promote themselves in a ‘new urban order’ marked by increased competitiveness. This discussion underscores the centrality of studies of urban cultures and consumption to contemporary geographical research.
