Making the Changing Scene

This presentation provides context for the session, with material from over 60 years’ experience doing participant-observation marketing research, interpreting it for brand managers at consumer product firms, and “swimming in the culture.” Three epochs of JIF peanut butter advertising are portrayed and semiotically analyzed for cultural meanings and dynamic trajectory.
