How Regional Diasporic Consumer Experiences Produce Transnational Imaginary

This paper examines individual experiences of regional diaspora consumers and how they combine to produce a transnational consciousness and belongingness in the marketplace. In-depth interviews with Middle Eastern diaspora identify five emotions to construct a transnational, imagined Middle Eastern world through three elements of re-enactment. Implications for marketing are discussed.
