Learning to Be Cosmopolitan
This paper examines how consumers learn to be cosmopolitan. It considers the way mobile consumers incorporate and exercise the cosmopolitan ideals of flexibility, adaptability, and competence in three modes: objectified, institutionalized, and embodied cosmopolitanism. By looking at cosmopolitanism as an ideology that reproduces as cultural capital, it identifies important implications for consumer research.
