2011 (English)In: Research in Consumer Behavior / [ed] Russell W. Belk, Kent Grayson, Albert M. Muñiz, Jr, Hope Jensen Schau, Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2011, 77-92 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Purpose: To develop Consumer Culture Theory's practice perspective to increase the understanding of the consumption context and thereby of the sociohistoric patterning of consumption.

Design/methodology/approach: An ethnographic exploration of how the different practices involved in a consumption situation, like the everyday dinner among single mothers, contextualized consumption.

Findings: The chapter concludes that mothering, defined as a metapractice, dominated the consumption situation and organized the other practices involved.

Originality/value: Introducing the concept of meta-practices having a major influence over our consumption and thus a type of practice consumption research should look for.
