Marketing Generations: Intergenerational Aspects of Consumer Culture

Re-framing mother-daughter relations as a dialectic and taking an oral-history method this paper shows intergenerational memory to converge in shared family signatures of consumption. It responds to Wilkie and Moore’s (2005) call for intergenerational research that it ‘layered’ and shows how shifts in consumer culture are incorporated across family generations.
