The contemporary global consumptionscape is characterized by a vast array of global economic, technological and cultural flows. These flows connect different consumer cultures in highly complex ways. One outcome of global cultural flows is the re-appropriation of cultural practices in their places of origin after a process of sanctioning in the Western hotbed of consumer culture production. In this session we will explore how the crossing and re-crossing of boundaries has fundamentally transformed the practices and ideas behind local consumption practices in the Asian marketplace.
