Family Consumption Experiences Across Generations

This research investigates the temporal dynamics of a family identity, embedded in a consumption experience (playing soccer) that spans multiple generations. We document the lifecycle of the identity, highlight periods of dormancy, rekindling, growth, and decline and note the role of identity guardians in sustaining the identity across these phases
