Social Status Implications of Transmigrants’ Consumer Practices in Their Cultures of Origin

Rooted in ethnographic research, this paper explores the consumption practices, experiences, perceptions and identity negotiations of Turkish transmigrants during their annual visits to Turkey and the subsequent implications on their social status. Building on previous literature, the contributions emphasize the importance of transmigrant identity positionings in their cultures of origin.
