Imagining Place-Based Community Through Consumption? An Autoethnography
This working paper describes the first phase of research that explores the potential of consumer experiences in servicescapes to construct postmodern community that is grounded in place. This stage adopted an autoethnographic methodology to examine the subjective, emotional and imaginative aspects of the community experience, through the author’s consumption experiences within her new neighbourhood. Analysis shows that value experiences within servicescapes can facilitate integration into local social networks and enhance identification with, and attachment to place. Cumulatively these experiences also shape imagined identity in a process that relies on significant cross-referencing between individual and collective identification.
