Home Sweet Home: the Role of Home Country Nostalgia on Immigrants’ Acculturation and Consumption

This work helps advance acculturation research by locating immigrant’s home country nostalgia in the middle of the acculturation process. We detect a circular process connecting home country nostalgia to immigrants’ consumption, and elaborate four manifestations of nostalgic consumption: shelter, tribute, solidarity, and reculturation.
