Intergenerational Transfer of Consumption Practices Within Families

We examine intergenerational transfers of consumption practices (ITCPs) as embedded within families containing multiple identity projects (individual, intra-family coalitions, family collective). Through in-depth interviews, we explore synergistic and discordant elements of consumption practices, how these implicate identity projects, how they are negotiated among family members, and how they influence ITCPs.
