Consumer Ethnic Identity: the Implications of Short Term Exposure to a Similar Culture

Positioned within the field of consumer culture theory, this research contributes to one of the key questions on marketplace cultures: does a short exposure to a host trans-national consumer culture result in the negotiation of new consumer ethnic identities? Our findings suggest that, even in a short period of time and in a comparable cultural and linguistic environment, both agentic (self-driven) and structural (imposed circumstances) forces have an impact on consumer ethnic identities.
