The Confluence of Ideologies in Consumption Activities

Lindsay McShane, Queen's University, Canada
When consumers engage in activities rooted in other cultures, they bring together disparate ideologies. Through six phenomenological interviews with yoga practitioners, this study examines how consumers negotiate ideological conflicts and why they immerse themselves in these conflicts. The interviews suggest consumers do so to authenticate hedonic pursuits and craft authentic consumption experiences.
