Consumption and Identity in Arduous Situations : How the Adaptation of Travel Practices Among Very Elderly People Modifies Their Identity

We conducted an ethnographic research in the French railways, to observe how elderly people adapt their practices in a constraining context. The results also revealed how socio-material objects could help elderly people to travel successfully.
