Gender Identity Politics and Consumption: Mobilizing Scottish Masculinities Through Relational Consumption Practices

Invigorated by recent debates about nationalism in consumer research, this paper presents findings from an ethnographic study that explored young Scottish male consumers. Depicting participants’ mobilizations and manifestations of national identifications through gendered consumption, it seeks to contribute to an understanding of how gender relations interact with identity politics.
