Memories of Pre- and Post-Migration Consumption: Better Times Or Embodiments of a Defensive Mental State?

Andrew Lindridge, The Open University Business School, UK

We question the assumptions of migration being a positive process by exploring consumption as an embodiment of traumatic shift in migrants psyche and subsequent memories and behaviors.
