Roundtable Session: Giving, Sharing, Consuming: Connecting Consumer Behaviors

With this roundtable, we hope to 1) expose ACR members to topics besides self-indulgent consuming, 2) identify the tensions and convergences between the diverse consumers‘ behaviors 3) discuss the conceptual, theoretical and methodological implications and 4) offer a platform for developing collaborative studies and further reflecting on the similarities and differences between gift giving and charity giving, sharing and consuming.
