Portals of Transformation in Consumer Experiences
Passages between worlds are ubiquitous in postmodern consumer experiences, yet consumer research gives little formal attention to portal characteristics.

Understanding portals has rich implications for contemporary consumer experiences of longing, liminality and loss in consumer journeys.
