From “Moving Consumption” to “Spacing Consumption:” in Search of Consumption Geographies

Based on an ethnographic study of a multi-sited festival, this analysis highlights the spatial aspect of mobile consumption. By operationalizing the new mobilities paradigm via a non-representational approach, this paper elaborates the concept of spacing consumption as the process whereby practices of consumption emerge as embodied, performative, and political.
