Asserting Integration Through Nostalgic Discourses: Acculturation to an International Community

This paper proposes an exploration of nostalgic acculturation discourses in multicultural settings, asking how consumers integrate institutional expectations in those discourses. We show that instead of exclusively promoting cosmopolitan detachment from home culture, multicultural environments can encourage display of national belonging, expressed in nostalgic discourses about mundane and global products.
