Life Transition to Terminality: Dynamic Regimes of Representation, Permanent Liminality, and Coping Consumption

Through the lenses of representation theory, this (n)ethnographic research contributes to literature on consumer permanent liminality and coping consumption. Unpacking life and market transition of patients to terminality accounts for how they use representational agency and consumption to counterbalance etic representational regimes, and the tensions arising from their liminal experience.
