Consumer Identity in the Flesh: Lactose Intolerance and the Erupting Body
Mobilizing Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology of embodiment, we study lactose intolerant consumers to understand how consumption, embodiment and identity work are connected. Lactose intolerance solicits identity work at three inter-connected levels of embodiment. Consumers respond with three categories of embodiment-oriented identity work. Our research demonstrates the fruitfulness of an embodiment-oriented research program.
