Exploring the Intersection of Digital Virtual Consumption and Family Rituals

Our research examines how digital virtual consumption enables family rituals in four ways: 1) they provide virtual ritual artifacts 2) they aid in locating ritual scripts 3) they build capacities in ritual performance and 4) they extend the reach of ritual audiences. In turn, this process aids in constructing family identities.
