Social Conflict and Consumption: A Meta-Analytical Perspective

Husemann, K.C. & Luedicke, M. K. (2013). Social Conflict and Consumption: A Meta-Analytical Perspective. NA - Advances in Consumer Research, 41, pp. 355-360.


This study sketches out the conceptual contours of “consumption-mediated social conflict”. Building on theoretical groundwork from sociology and conceptual synthesis of 13 original consumer culture studies, the authors distill three prevalent patterns of social conflict in consumption contexts—emancipatory, ideology-advocating, and authenticity-protecting conflicts—and discuss implications for future conflict research.
